Ham Software

I have used this for years, works, its free,  BE CAREFUL what you are down loading, make sure you get what you want,
READ.  when installing don't use the auto installer, most of the time this type of free offer has things like search bars, free computer speedup diagnostics attached, make sure to UNclick anything you don't want.

pick either ZoneAlarm or AVG,  both have Morphed into almost identical programs, 

 

 
Free Firewall software, ZoneAlarm

  want a great circle map from ur location down load it
I've tested this and it seems good.
Satellite tracking software,  this was at one time the hot ticket, it is written for DOS. I think it will run in a dos window ??  works great, simple to use.  myself and N7LB tracked and talked with the space shuttle at Franklin Jr Hi  using this software.
Instanttrack V1.55 the latest version, 
you can't buy this so if you need a DOS tracker 
here it is . Instant track

Famous J-a-y   L-e-n-o   CW vs Text Messaging ,   
This is a download, save it to your computer, make sure you
know where you saved it
,  its name is lenocw.xyz..
once you save it, RENAME it lenocw.wmv    then it will be
yours forever, saved on your computer               --------->>>
Note: Leno vs cw,   if I leave the file name lenocw.wmv, and you click the link, all sorts of various problems popup ! depending on your computer configuration ??

so the .xyz  was a sure bet to force a download of the file to your computer ....
