Hermes Lite 2 on the air

I spent last weekend tromping through the woods to get a wire antenna up.  It ended up being longer than I expected, and I eventually would like to get it up higher. Maybe this weekend?  Point being, I have a working receiver. Shown in this picture is SparkSDR, a host program compatible with the HL2, running 8 digital skimmers across 4 different bands simultaneously.
I can't get over how cool SDR'S are.

Next step is getting the antenna higher and after that, transmitting. Hope to be checking into sniper's net soon!
