Good afternoon, folks! KB3JRJ here, I've been a General class op for a while now but have never gone on HF. Some time ago, I purchased a gently-used IC-718, AT-7000 tuner, and MFJ window pass-through panel from a friend. I also just sprung for a pre-made end-fed QRP antenna that I think will work well in my small lot QTH. So, here's the dilemma: how to proceed? I thought I'd post here for suggestions. Again, what I have is: A rig (IC-718) A tuner (AT-7000) A power supply (25 amp switching) Some coax (probably not the best) A decent small Windows 10 computer (with wifi and bluetooth) An inexpensive QRP antenna (end-fed with uilt-in balun) What I'd like to do is: Casual voice ragchew Play with digital modes See where my interests take me before I go wild I'd like recommendations on: How best to connect my rig to my computer (USB? Bluetooth?) What software to get for my computer (haven't even started down that road yet) Good grounding (my shack is on the 2nd floor) What modes and bands to try first (I'm REALLY green here, folks) That's where I stand. Help?
