My current station setup is a TS790, Yaesu G5400 with the Sat688 controller.
There is a 440/144 antennas, no preamp yet. I do have a 440 preamp, but I
have not set it up. Currently trying SATPC32, but may try HRD when he
finishes adding the Easycomn1 communications. I think the setup is working.
I do have a series of questions so that I can make my fist QSO..
What are the better satellites to work evenings here in the NE?
Are some easier to work?
I know there are some issues with the TS790 (so I have been told). Any tips?
Do you shut off the computer control after it comes into view?
Is there a decent Linux program that will control what I have??
Any tips or help would be great!!
