Besides the other programs listed already, I still use WISP for a few quick
look things, and that works fine on WIN7.  

For satellite logging, if you don't use HRD, then the DXLabs DXKeeper.  At
one time, it was the only program which actually did LoTW sat QSOs
correctly, and I never found a reason to change.

JT65HF, another take on WSJT, which I use.

You didn't mention what version of Win7.  If Pro or up, you can download a
free XP virtual environment from MS, which works well for old programs, and
even allows ancient DOS programs to access comm ports.

For non-ham stuff, a good antivirus program, and a backup program such as
Acronis, Norton, or perhaps Paragon.

So my 4 yr old XP shack computer is in critical care right now, and I 
have a new quad core Win 7 HP that I'm setting up today. So far I've 
downloaded and installed:

SatPC32 (still working on the speech error problem)
MixW 3
HDR 5.sumthing

next up is WSJT

What must have ham radio programs, especially satellite/vhf/uhf, do you 
have and recommend?
