The automatic Doppler control does not work properly. I've never tried
it, so I'm not sure what the actual issue is.

SatPC32 is the way to go for computer control on the linear transponders.

I have heard on several occasions that HRD and its associated satellite tracking module works fine for FM birds but not for linear birds. Can someone please clarify what the actual issue is? I currently have HRD version 6X and I am looking to purchase an IC9100 to mate it with. I have contacted the HRD support folks, but the answer I get is: "not sure, try it". Well, I don't have the IC9100 yet so I can't try it.
