better mobility of frequency, that will be a very nice combo.

That is a question with many answers, it depends on your personal
taste, Rocky is very popular, there is also the M0KGK software, and

for receive only the Winrad software is one of the best sounding
software packages out there.
My advise is to try them all and see which software package has the
features and feel that make you happy.
