 Hi Estefan,

  Yes for the moment I have a portable yagi which I am going to use with my ht. But I also want to try it out with a full size rig and a pc...I don't mind taking out all that stuff to my deck in the back
:-). I live in a rented townhouse for now...once I get a home things will become more permanent.

 I did get pocketsat for my iPad, excellent program.
