Hi Marv,

I don't think that HRD supports a control box in either EasyComm or GS232 modes yet, so the LVB Tracker isn't going to work.   It is still in the "developmental" stage as I recall.  So, you probably cannot get it to work right with that program...

So--you might want to check out SatPC32.  It's a super program, and if/when you register, ALL of the money goes to AMSAT!
