Amateur Radio

Well I will start a little about the equipment I am running, firstly the antennas I have up is a Dual Band J-Pole for 144/430 Mhz and a multi band Fan Dipole for 80, 40, 20, 10 meter bands with bonus 15 meter band with use of an auto tuner and the 40 meter band part of the fan dipole. Both theses antennas I have built myself. I have recently have added a 1:1 Jetstream Balun to my fan dipole with no real noticeable difference. My current radios I am using is Yaesu FT-897D with LDG AT-897 auto tuner, which I have connected to my computer via CAT->Serial(CT-62) cable which I use the various bit of software for controlling the radio for balloon tracking for Project Horus with dl-fldigi, and tracking ARISSat-1 with Gpredict. and I have a Yaesu FT-270R/E 2M HT too.
