Hi Les (and others)

I haven't used 6.0 but almost every version before that.

When you just want to listen to the sats, it is a great peace of 
but when you also want to transmit via the sats and be able to control 
uplink via de software, then my experience is, that is a pain to work 
the VFO sliders.

If they would change the way the frequency can be changed I would use 
it more

Now, after trying them all (Nova, Orbitron WXtrack, etc etc),
SatPC32 is my preferred software for working the Sats.
