[amsat-bb] Problems With SATPC32

Hi Maciel,
1. the program updates both frequencies of the RADIO (only) whenever the 
Doppler shift of the higher band changed by a certain amount of Hz or 
more (= "interval", see menu CAT). For testing set the interval for SSB 
to 10 and choose FO-29. The program will then update the radio 
frequencies when the Doppler shift of the downlink (UHF) changed by 10 
Hz or more.  I use intervals of 50 Hz for SSB and 100 Hz for FM sats. 
That are good practical values.

2. At program start the program will always use group "Standard" (FAQs 
file sect. 5d). Therefore add your favourite sats to group "Standard".

3. Select Yaesu_GS-232 from the list of supported controllers in menu 
"Rotor Setup". Then press the UPPER "Store" button and restart the 
program. It should now start the interface program "ServerSDX" and the 
symbol of "ServerSDX" should show up in the task line. Click on it to 
show ServerSDX normally. In the ServerSDX setup window choose an 
available COM port and the baudrate. Save the changes and restart 
SatPC32 once again.  To test rotor control open menu "Rotor" and click - 
for example - the "Park" button.
