[amsat-bb] Doppler Shift Software

I'm trying to set up my station's Doppler shift control.  I have an
FT-847 and I've been working mostly with Satscape software because I
love the graphics display and ease of use.  But getting it to accept
frequency changes thru the drop-down combo boxes (like changing AO7 from
Mode A to Mode B) is next to impossible.  

Other software I've d/l'ed includes SatPC32, HRD, Nova for Windows,
Orbitron, and Predict for DOS.  I like HRD the best but the current
build has a major defect in the 847 support.  I've been less than
successful in getting any of the others to control the radio.  

I'd like to hear from users of each package about how to interface with
the radio.  

And please, no lectures about using Linux instead of Windows.  It's not
an option.

Light travels faster than sound...  This is why some people appear
bright until you hear them speak.
