   Been "off the air" with sats once the demise of AO40 but with
  all the new birds up, thought I'd give it another go. Since hardware
  and software have changed a great deal, thought I'd get some opinions.
  I have a Yaesu FT736r and and Yaesu FT847.  G5400b rotor and a 22 element
  2M cross beam and a larger 440 (not sure how may elements) beam.  All 
   setup on 2.4ghz receive with a converted direct broadcast box i modified
  and recently finished an LVB tracker.  So the big question remains....
   what software?   Kind of narrowed it to either SCRAP or Nova, but
  any suggestions good bad or otherwise?  I used to use WinOrbit before
  but would like to use az/el AND radio tuning with the 847...  Many
   thanks.  -James   KI0KN
