    Thanks Tim (VE6SH) for the message. Been up to other projects so haven't been checking back here recently. I believe I am ready to go when my 5BVUX ships. Have 50 feet of BNC connector, high quality cable that I can use to sit on my patio with my Arrow antenna and my laptop to see if I can hear some of the satellites. Also plan to see if I can hit some of the repeaters in the area with the Arrow. Hope to order some aluminum stock to build some Yagi antennas - look like there are some excellent articles at ARRL and on the net. Should be a fun and exciting summer! Sounds like you found the SBVUX easy to set up - hope a newbie can figure it out too.

    Haven't heard anything yet on my shipping date. Will be following your experience with the cable as you continue your project.

    Still waiting on the cable to arrive. I also ordered a Leo Bodnar external GPS reference for the 6700. Hopefully will all arrive this week
