Dear All,

After being very happy with SATPC32's results both for satellite tracking
in my home station and during ARISS sessions, I have started exploring
WISAT32 that is included in the SATPC32 package.

Basically, what I am looking for is to have WISAT32 replace WISP that I
have been using as my primary tracking software for the past few years. 
However, in WISAT32, I encounter a few problems that I hope someone could
lead me to a solution:

1. I have loaded a list of satellites in WISAT32 (similar to how you do it
in WISP).  How do I get WISAT32 to start tracking the satellite
automatically (rotor and CAT control) as soon as a particular satellite
comes above the horizon?  Under "Options", I have enabled "Auto Select" but
the tracking still does not start unless I click on the satellite.

2. Also is it possible to set priority (like in WISP) as to which satellite
to track, in case 2 satellites comes in at the same time?  

3. It seems that the manual frequency control buttons has been disabled
(200, 100, 500, 1k, 5k) as compared to SATPC32 main program.  Is there a
way to enable this back, as it is useful for some frequency "trimming" at

Appreciate if someone could kindly help me with the above issues, which I
believe is really a minor one that I am not aware of.

Thank you.
