I have a Flex-5000A with the extra receiver. I have a 70 cm transverter 
connected to the main RX/TX via the transverter connectors and a 2M 
converter into RX2. I am attempting to operate mode B satellite 
operation, 70 cm TX up and 2M RX down using the Sat32PC tracking program 
TS-2000 rig control. Unfortunately, the program sets the TX frequency on 
VFOB and the RX frequency on VFOA. I want it the other way around. I 
tried tricking the program by changing to mode J, 2M up, 70cm down, but 
the doppler control is reversed then.

Has anybody been able to use Sat32PC successfully for full duplex 
Flex-5000 with external transverters for frequency control? If so, how 
did you configure it?
