At the moment I have installed HRD 5.0 build 2434

I use the same keppler sources for all the programs

OS is Windows XP - US with SP3 on a 3.0 GHz P4 HT with 2Gb ram.

I love HRD but the fact that I work satellites 95% of the time makes
HRD Satellite Tracker the most important component of the HRD suite and
it is not working for me.

Here are two problems that I run into:

When I configure the use of for example SO-50 the uplink freq is not
correct I don't know where the problem is but when I use SatPC32 with
the same settings every think working fine.

Regarding SO-50 I experience that the tone and CTCSS settings are not
correct when I use the Radio Pane function I have to use the settings via
HRD main program.

When I use a linear transponder sat, here is the thing I run into:

When alter the uplink freq to correct the difference in uplink and downlink
freq, that when I change freq with the top slidder (TRX) I have to adjust
the uplink again it doesn't keep the correction I made earlier.

When I use the the preset freq function and also configure USB and LSB
it doesn't change my radio in the way it is setup within the preset.
Almost every time uplink and downlink go into LSB mode and not as
configured in USB and LSB.

The things that are great are for example the integration with the logbook,
DX cluster, DM780, Passes overview with HRD Sat Track, Great!

These where a couple of examples,

Hope you can help me?
