Try other baud rates (higher).
But fair warning, SatPC32 is finicky with many rigs. I use a 706mk2g and I can turn on the cat control in the SatPC32 program, but it thinks for a few seconds, sends the data, and then it only updates the data once every 30-40 seconds. And I don't dare TX while the cat is turned on (will not work) . So, for normal operation, I just choose the bird I want to work, then activate the cat control long enough to update the rig. If I am using a bird that allows for multiple qso's, I'll activate the cat just to update the rig...... Sure you get the idea by now.
I use the cat control for a starting point, but mostly manual after that.

Subject: [amsat-bb] Mode A / FT-1000D / SatPC32
For the first time in at least 20 years I made a Mode A satellite contact.
This one was AO-07 (thanks to K3SZH for the QSO). Brought back RS-10 / 12
/ 15 memories for sure.
Got to thinking, any experience to work Mode A with SATPC32 by:
Tuning RX on Yaesu FT-1000D 10M band with SatPC32 ?
I want to configure SatPC32 to tune my FT-1000D on 10m for RX
I have other programs tuning the FT-1000 nicely so I know the CAT
interface is working.
I've tried the 736r And 847 settings at 4800, no luck...I retread the
help texts also.
Satpc32 is working fine to tune my 910H 2M band for uplink.
