Thanks Alan,

I have installed (as administrator) SatPC32 under Windows 7 64bit and have selected the Model, Baudrate and Addresses. For some reason it does not tune the radio. I can see that the COM port for the CI-V interface is busy while SatPC32 is running, but its not tuning the radio. The radio tunes partially from HRD, as HRD only tunes the downlink frequency, not the uplink.

Now I'm wondering if I purchased the wrong radio! Anyone using an ICOM IC-821H and have the tuning working correctly? I could really use some help/advice.

  Give SATPC32 a look.  It supports the rig, and should do a very good job for
  you.  You can download a trial version to verify it does what you want.

  I just acquired an ICOM IC-821H as I plan to build a satellite capable
  station. I cannot get HRD to tune both uplink and downlink. Seems the CAT
  commands in the ICOM don't exist or are not supported.

  Am I stuck turning the dial manually on this radio, or is there another
  program that can tune both the 2m and 70cm on an IC-821H?
