WISP will run under Windows 7.  It has some quirks but it is good
software.  Shout it you need help setting it up.

I'm using an old DPK-9600 TNC and it works well.  The TNC needs to support
9600 baud GMSK.  I don't know if that means all will work.  I had to fiddle
with it a bit to get it setup.  It was not quite plug and play, but not far
from it.

That said, there are software only solutions, so if you do not already have
a TNC collecting dust on a shelf (as I did) you might want to use
software.  There is advice here: http://www.qsl.net/py4zbz/falconsat.htm
which is very clear once you run google translate on the page.
