I am not sure if this went through the first time I sent it. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks and 73!

> Good afternoon. I am looking for some advice at working the linear satellites such as FO-29 and VO-52. I just got SatPC32 installed and controlling my Icom 706mkiiG. Unfortunately therefore I am not working full duplex however I was able to copy a pass of FO-29 last night although not exactly on the frequency that SATPC32 was tuning my rig onto. Are there corrections that need to be made to correct the shift in frequency? Are those corrections set once based on the rig being used or is it satellite specific as well?
