Steve N9IP did a very good job of explaining how to set up for VO-52 and other transponder type sats. I have the TS-2000 and use SatPC32 with it with great success on the FM birds especially ARISSat-1. There is one clarification I would like to make to Steve's SOP. The "C+" and "C-" should be "CW+" and "CW-". We don't want confusion between that and turning CAT control on and off.
I used HRD Sat Track for years and always had problems with the Doppler correction. This has not been the case with SatPC32. I love it and will continue to use it for all my sat work. I am hoping to get more active since I will be installing two mast mounted pre-amps tomorrow. The anticipation is driving me nuts. I hope I am not let down.
