[amsat-bb] SatPC32 via Wine on Ubuntu

Some of you may have been following my attempts to continue to use a
vacation house P4 that had been running XP (still is but its painful to
watch and wait). I've been trying to familiarize myself with Linux using
Ubunbtu. I got FlDigi to work fine and WSJTX as well as a good log program
called CQrlog.

I got stumped though with my satellite operation. I tried with helpd to get
GPredict running but it (or Hamlib) was still buggy on the FT947 even with
the latest version.

I then, with help, installed Wine and dowloaded my favorite program -
SatPC32. To my surprise it works....almost. I don't seem to have Frequency
adjustment at the radio by using the CAT controls in the software. I also
can't change the mode to CW through the software. Is anyone using SatPC32
on a Linux platform? If so I'd like to connect tap your brain.

73 and hope to see you on the birds from my portable location at FN21
