It’s what I’m using and it works well.

Just make sure to set the center frequency well away from what you you want to receive, due to the DC spike.

In the input tab, try setting the frequency to 145.930, and in each spacecraft set up there is a check box to the the FCD scan for the satellite downlink frequency.

Mine are  working great with 2m and 70cm egg beater antennas.
