Hi Mike,

I don't use it to control my radios, as I have a custom set of interfaces.  I use predict (the text-based one) as the IP server for a homebrew CAT driver, and I modified the predict source so that it output the proper strings for Az/El control.  Gpredict supports all the pass prediction and planning activities, and the graphical eye candy.  Someday I'll combine things and use Gpredict for everything, but I haven't gotten to that yet.

And even if I did, my radio is a Yaesu 736R, which has the annoying CAT interface that disables the rig's knobs and switches when it's engaged.  So, I wouldn't be able to tell.

Sorry, not much help on those points.
