The name you use in the DOPPLER.SQF file must match the name in the Keps
exactly for the program to match them up.  ARISSat-1 is identified as
RADIOSCAF-B in the AMATEUR.TXT file, but ARISSAT1 in the NASA.ALL file.  You
should be using the first, since it is more current.  Change that in the
DOPPLER.SQF file, and it should work.  

Once your get it working, you can experiment with the AMSATNAMES.TXT file
which allows you to create a sort of translation so that SATPC32 will
recognize different names.

Hi Group


Have just downloaded the trial version of SATPC32 and have most things
working ok.


The only thing I cant get to work is the Doppler tracking SatPC2
controls the rig an Icom 910 fine with the default satellites well.

It give examples of what to added in the Doppler.SQF file so here are my


Should the Doppler.SQF file have been created during installation  I had
to create my manually?

I have put an entry in for ARiSSAT1 but SATPC32 is not picking this
information up from the file.

I know that this is a newbie error but could somebody point me in the
right direction 


73 and Thanks
