[amsat-bb] SatPC32 parking frequency?

Hi Reid,

I used the original TestSat2 Keps I sent, and your DOPPLER.SQF changed to TestSat2, and it worked as
desired.  One thing to check is the object number.  I used a "standard made up" number, and if SatPC32
sees two objects with the same number, it can cause problems.  Check in your Keps you don't have
another 99999.

<I have attempted use SatPC to provide frequency parking at the end of any priority passes. Thanks to
<Alan, WA4SCA, he provided some data for simulation of a GeoSync satellite. I tweaked the values to

<range and that it is selected when no other satellite with a priority of 1-9 is above the horizon.
<The problem I am having is that when I put the frequencies I want into DOPPLER.SQF. I entered the

<The name matches the keps. etc. However, nothing displays in the Doppler window. My assumption at
<this point is that SatPC knows its a Geo or at least there will be no Doppler and doesn't display or
<the entered values.
<Wonder if anyone else has any thoughts on this.
<The intent was to allow the radio to monitor local frequencies when no satellites were in range then
<switch as any came within range. Looks like this is not going to work.
