[amsat-bb] Controlling WRAPS Rotor

Last year I built WA8SME's WRAPS rotor to use with my Arrow antenna, and
it works fine with SatPC32 (set up as SAEBRTrackBox).
Has anyone ever been able to control such a rotor with anything other
than SatPC32? I'd rather use my Mac to drive this thing than drag out
an old laptop with Windows, but I cannot get either MacDoppler or
gpredict to drive it. No obvious errors, but the WRAPS never responds
to either one. Still works fine with SatPC32.
I've tried setting MacDoppler (and gpredict, IIRC) to both EasyCom I and
EasyCom II at 9600 bps, with no success. Mark's documentation says it
