Dick, I just got my FT-817 pair (FT-1634) setup with SatPC32. I struggled
with the getting the rigs to sync and tune until I chanced upon how to set
the baud rate in the SatPC32. It is working flawlessly now, I just need to
make time to sit on some passes and fine-tune the doppler adjustments. I
figure this will be my next hurdle, but right now everything tracks when I
tune either on Downlink radio or via SatPC32. Let me know if you have any
difficulties in CAT configuration...73 Brad WF7T
