  20. DELL Latitude D630 laptop (Core2Duo 2.4 GHz, 2Gb RAM), running Windows XP professional
  21. 22″ ACER monitor. Connected to the laptop as a secondary monitor, so I can use both the 22″ and the laptop monitors simultaneously.
  22. Linrad. Software Defined Receiver software, showing a 160 kHz bandwidth. Allows to monitor the whole EME segment simultaneously.
  23. VAC (Virtual Audio Cable).  Reroutes the audio output of Linrad (22) to WSJT (24), internally without cables.
  24. Instance #1 of the WSJT program, just for decoding the signals received by Linrad
  25. Instance #2 of the WSJT program, used to decoding the signals received by the TS-790 and also for transmitting.
