Hello List, 

After checking with Erich and his always timely and helpful responses, I still am having trouble with SatPC32 ver. 12.8 and CAT control on the TS-2000X.  Erich is not able to reproduce my results...his is working just fine. 

The trouble seems to be specific to the SSB mode birds.  The symptom is that the frequency isn't updated at the expected interval (Doppler correction isn't occurring at the expected frequency change intervals).   It is slow to occur, if at all. 

Futhermore, when trying to change between U/V and V/U birds, the band changes don't occur (i.e., the xmit/rcv VFO's don't swap bands). 

Everything works perfectly under ver. 12.7.  I have checked and rechecked settings in ver. 12.8, and I have uninstalled/reinstalled, and still the symptoms appear.  I am using WinXP Pro.  I'm not sure what firmware I have in the TS-2000X..but it works perfectly under 12.7. 

Is anyone else using a TS-2000X or TS-2000 seeing similar symptoms with ver. 12.8?
