Thanks for all your great help in enabling us to work the sats.
I read with great interest the article in the latest AMSAT Journal by Adrian Engele, AA5UK...In it he indicated that he used SatPC to control the doppler receive in his rig which precluded the need for a rig with full duplex capabilities. I had thought I need a full duplex rig to work the birds with linear transponders. I have seveal hundred qso's on the FM birds and want to get on the ssb birds. Also would like to get on the ssb birds for FD as I know the FM birds will be crowded and current predictions indicate only a couple good passes of the fm birds during FD here in Houston.
My question is will SatPC (or any other software) enable me to use my IC7000, which is not a full duplex rig, to work the birds with linear transponders???
Thanks again for all your help.
