HI Eric,
   Yes you can page 82 in the TS 2000 manual describes how to do it in the 
wireless remote control mode using DTMF tones.   Using a Kenwood Packet type 
transceiver or any packet station you are able to control almost all 
adjustments to the TS 2000.   The decimation for this is in the back if the 
Kenwood manual.
    Suggestion: it would be nice if some one could write a program just to 
control the TS 2000 for  satellite communication via remote control.
