Hi Bob,
I'm sorry that you have problems with the program.
I suppose you are running the latest version 12.8b.  Also, I suppose the 
program worked when you first started it after installation and the problems 
occured after you configured it.

The best will be:
Uninstall the program and re-install it. It should now start with the 
settings that come with the setup file. Then configure the program 

COM port error:
The COM port for CAT control can be chosen in menu "Radio Setup". Make sure 
that the port is available on your system and not in use by another program. 
With the Windows System panel check which COM ports are available on your 
system. If you use a USB-to-Serial adapter the COM port number will change 
if you change the USB port! That would explain that COM 3 is no longer 

No source file found error.
I have described that error in the FAQs file (sect. 5 h). I have just 
updated that section in the FAQs file on my website. You can open that file 
with the link  on my website www.dk1tb.de, English page "Downloads". Please, 
read the item 5h carefully.

When you have a flawlessly working configuration start the program 
"DataBackup" from the SatPC32 menu "Programs" and save your settings. So, 
you can easily restore the working configurations if problems occur lateron.

73s, Erich, DK1TB
