Greg and everyone:

In addition to the helpful advice on this list, you'll find some excellent
step-by-step instructions for this and other digital modes (even with
specific reference to the TH-D7A) in the AO-51 Book by Gould Smith,
available at the AMSAT store: http://www.amsat-na.com/item.php?id=100047

It's been a great book to take to work and read at lunch, too.

73, Bruce
