Having a few issues using SatPC32 and especially Yaesu gear, 
specifically FT-817 and FT-857. The copy I aa using is not a registered 
version yet nor have I modified any of the SQF files.

When using on the FT-817, I cannot get any response to the radio. It 
doesn't appear to follow the doppler corrections being issued by the 
program. When using the FT-857, the unit appears to semi-work, but it 
seems to switch between 2 vfos. When using my Icom IC-910, it works fine 
if I let it go into satellite mode.

If this is just a file editing problem let me know. In general, I'll be 
using the IC-910 most often but have considered using the 817/857 for 
portable operation if I can get it to work correctly. I also noticed 
that the FT-857 has issues with HRD as well, but that's a subject for 
another time.

Any guesses as to why FT-817 not working or does there need to be some 
initial file modifications?
