[amsat-bb] APRS with AGW/UISS & Icom 9100...

Hello group!

I'm new to the list and I'm looking to dive deep into the satellite end of
the hobby. I am currently building a decent az/el station, and can't wait
to work some birds.

One of the other things I really want to do is hit the digipeater on the
ISS and decode telemetry.

So I began working on APRS using AGW Packet Engine with UISS by ON6MU.

I've managed to configure my station to decode packets and I can even send
them, but I cannot, for the life of me, figure out how trigger the IC9100
to transmit.  I'm using the digital mode on the 9100, and if I manually hit
transmit on the radio, I can send a packet successfully...

However, after following the instructions here (
http://www.issfanclub.com/node/37988) I still can't figure out how to
"create ports that are linked" nor  "split the ports" nor use the ICOM
Keyer / AGW interface to facilitate RTS

The 9100 is using COM9 and COM10 on my computer.  I can get the 9100 to key
with WSPR and WSJT, but not with AGW/UISS.

I was hoping to use Ham Radio Deluxe to manage the doppler, and not SatPC

Any IC9100 owners have a similar setup and have any ideas or insights?
...or has a similar problem been solved before?

Thanks in advance.


PS. I will be joining AMSAT :)
