[amsat-bb] SatPC32/IC-9700 Start Up Issue

After watching Daniel, W5EKG's You Tube video, I had SatPC32 and the
IC-9700 working beautifully on the first try.  (Thanks, Daniel!) The
radio frequency tracked the software real-time just like it should.

However, after playing around for a few minutes (changing satellites,
turning the main tuning knob, etc.) The radio suddenly stopped
following the frequency changes from SatPC32.  The frequency
intermittently updates after 10-20 seconds accompanied by the
frequency on the radio display flashing white from MAIN to SUB for a
brief moment.  Usually nothing happens until I choose another
satellite then the frequency updates once then...crickets.

Pertinent information:

Windows 10
IC-9700 Firmware 1.05
Icom Driver Version 1.30
Baud Rate: 19200 (Tried dropping it to 9600)
The AFC is turned off.
Tried rebooting the software.
Tried rebooting the computer, etc.

Any clues?
