Hi Drew and others,
if you want SatPC32 to start off the center of the passband of an SSB/CW
satellite do the following: Run the program choose that satellite. Tune the
radio to the start frequency you want - say 8 kHz above the center of the
passband. Then click menu CAT > Change/Store Data File > RX/TX Freq. Data.
>From the next program start the program will start at the new downlink and
73s, Erich, DK1TB
