Well, it's been almost a year and I have made a lot of spectrum saves, done a lot of overlays etc... It's really a great tool. I will admit that it does needs a fairly powerful PC. The one I run is a "hot rodded" HP with an i7 4770 and 16 GB RAM, Windows 10 Pro. Even with that it tends to take a fairly long time to analyze the spectrum. Several minutes anyhow.

I used it so much trying to analyze my two antenna set-up and got the antennas pointed to optimum that I finally unhooked it, no use for it. If need be, I can rerun a cable to the PC for signal analysis in the future.
