Hi Greg,
  I'm having very good success copying telem from ECHO with a icom ic-910 ,m2 
435cp30 antenna (although when echo is set to 3 watts  I think about any 
antenna would work fine) ,kantronics 9612 plus tnc, and running the tlmecho 
program.

and these keps..

AO-Echo
1 28375U 04025K   04183.47006615  .00000287  00000-0  10000-3 0    50
2 28375  98.2621 252.9994 0084230 208.8104 150.8419 14.40373691   124

I just let the antenna autotrack,set the 910 to 435.160 before the pass and 
start up the tlmecho program, with afc enabled on the 910, it becomes a hands 
free operation...
