[amsat-bb] SATpc32/IC-9700 Start Up Issue

I wrestled with this problem for over a week trying everything I could
think of to change and test.  I finally saw a post by one of the developers
of either the N1MM Contest Logging program or the WSJT-X digital program -
can't remember which - saying that if you use their program with the
IC-9700 then turn OFF the CI-V Transceive function or you will have data
collisions.  I turned it off in my IC-9700 and haven't had the problem
since (the default is ON).
Go to page 8-13 in the manual to see how to get to this setting.
I'd be interested in knowing how many people had this problem.

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.
