My first thought is that your CAT delay is not correct for the baud rate you 
are using to communicate with the radio...  What baud rate are you using, 
and what is your CAT delay set at?

Check the Radio Hints for Icom users under the "?" menu for more info.

I am running an IC-821 with Satpc32 software
Occasionally when I am using 2 meters as the uplink
the radio will jump down exactly 400k cycles on the transmit
The software shows the correct freq, but the radio is off by minus 400K

To prevent this I usually  have to turn the CAT off and use the radio
manually to track the freq.

It certainly is not the end of the world to do this, but I sure would 
any advice that would allow me to keep the CAT connected.

Thanks from cold and snowy MN
