Try this: With Foxtelem running, try firing up your signal generator, handheld, etc. to 145.98. With any luck you will see a nice peak in the lower graph. If you vary the signal generator freq, the AFC will track it. Proves that you can receive something. Awesome. What a piece of software. Waiting for 2350Z to try the real thing.

As I read through the docs on the fox tlm program two things are not clear: 

If I have a FunCube Dongle hooked to a USB port and antenna, do I need 
to run any other software besides foxtelem.exe? 
With the FCD on the USB port and the IQ box checked in foxtelem.exe what 
should I see on the screen with no signal present? Noise, nothing? 
How do I know, before the signal is there, if this is working and the 
FCD is talking to foxtelem? 

When I run the FCD software it can talk to the FCD dongle, set the freq, 
etc. When I run foltelem there is no indication anything is talking to 
anything else.
