[amsat-bb] SatPC32 Not Tuning

I am trying to get SatPC32 v12.8 to automatically tune my FT847. When
the program first comes up, the radio is initialized as indicated by the
"CAT" display and when I click on a satellite, the radio tunes to the
correct satellite. That's where it stops; it no longer changes the
frequency of the radio. If I turn off and turn back on CAT control, it
will update once and will then quit again. I have the same problem with
I have read the help and .SQF files, but I cannot seem to find the right
combination. I have changed the baud rate of the radio and the program
to 4800, 9600, and 57.6k and made the corresponding changes with the CAT
delay value as recommended by the manual. I have not yet tried
uninstalling and re-installing the app.
I am running Vista 32bit and using a USB-to-serial converter which works
with everything else. The same converter works with the HRD 5.0
Satellite Tracker. Problem is, I cannot get HRD to accept sub-audible
tones so I can work AO-51. I don't know if it's a limitation of the
program or cockpit error.
Any suggestions, known issues, or anyone else having the same problem(s)?
