I have a VU5K, and tried that. Everything looked rock steady using the parameters you specified.

<Subject: [amsat-bb] Flex-5000 "PA Info" Display Bug During
<I have been active on the satellites lately with my Flex-5000 using
<external transverters. PowerSDR version 2.6.4.
<I have noticed an error in the PA Info display, Ctrl-Shift-I,
<when I am
<in mode B and transmit is enabled. The Temp: will read very unusual
<temperatures, i.e. 572, intermittently for a moment. Values
<seem to be repetitive. I have seen large negative F values also. The
<Voltage: also reads 0 briefly sometimes.The radio appears to function
<normally when this occurs.
<This occurs even if the TX Drive is set to 0.
<I am running SatPC32 V.12.8b to control the uplink and downlink
<frequencies using x10 Speed. The problem seems to only occur
<when CAT is
<enabled on SatPC32.
<This seems like a conflict between variables used by PowerSDR's CAT
<control and the PA Info routines.
<Is anyone else using a Flex-5000 seeing this?
