     Setting up 1st bird in SatPC32.  When downloaded SatPC32 it had AO85 in Doppler.SQFAO-85,145980,435180FM,FM,Nor,0,0,Voice U/V   but it did not show up as a sat to pick. I looked in the AMSATNames.TXT it was incorrect. So changed to  40967 15058D   AO-85  I think that is correct. It still did not show up. What am I doing wrong? Other question the Doppler.SQF has 435180. The "Getting started with amateur satellites" book shows transmit freqs  from 435.160 to 435.170. What should the Doppler file have for freq? Again just starting with SatPC32 and trying to learn how to setup the tables. If someone could send the Doppler files for the FM birds until I learn this I would appreciate. My auto antenna tracking is working fine thanks to everyone.73 Mike  K4MIA
