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.

Now, keep in mind folks, Oscar bought an arrow antenna, not a cross yagi or dish or whatever else including rotor. He has small portable antenna for the great outdoors!
Hooking up an IC910, IC9100, FT847, TS2000 or whatever else which is primary a stationary rig is overkill. He needs a good cross-band HT or one of the mobile rigs. Also SatPC32 is not working on the balcony or in the front yard unless he drags out the computer and the power cables and the table and so on and on and on. He needs a handheld solution, software for a mobile phone or tablet for his arrow not a stationary equipment list.
2 cents worth,

No problem Angelo. The point was not the quirks and deficiencies, which the FT-847 and IC-910 have as well, but at what point to go into the details. Sometimes the "data dump" which we oldsters can generate can be a bit much! :)
