After some deliberation I decided to purchase a venerable old
FT-736R; just the basic 144/432 radio plus CTCSS board. surprising
even the AC PS is working.
I had initially thought about buying a good dual-band FM mobile but
costs would have been $350. I'm getting the FT-736R for $550. Of
course this provides multi-mode capability and satellite operation.
My question is what I will need to run the radio from SatPC32 on a
computer with only USB ports *XP32 OS? Does the radio need a special
I/F for computer control?
I'm hoping to have my antennas back in service this summer
(YaseuB5400 with 2M7 yagi and 436CP26). I have an old Unitrac-2000
which I will try to make work for both auto-tune and
auto-track. Probably be like a newby when I get back on - its been a
long time off the sats (2002).
