Have you tried to set it (the FT-991) as any other (I'd try all of
them, fiddling with the other settings as well!) Yaesu radio in
satpc32? Some manufacturers have common subsets of commands.

I'm assuming that HDSDR is running on a pc and that it is emulating a
TS-2000 (satpc32 set up the same way)?

The SDR's usually need some filtering on the front end to keep local
RFI and transmitter harmonics at bay. Easy enough to find. A little
work to get it tuned, though.

One of my rotators is a G-5400 on a tripod with casters. Rolled it
into and out of the garage. Great for testing antennas and the like.

Have fun,
