Yesterday  I uploaded a file with instructions on how to configure the 
IC-9700 and SatPC32 for CAT control (English page 'Downloads')

All CAT features seem to work flawlessly. I tested the CAT control 
several hours straight without any problem.

Also, I uploaded revised files that add the IC-9700 to the lists of 
supported models (with the recent program file choose the IC-9100 as 
model. That will work also because I did not make any other changes to 
the  program code).

The German text can be downloaded here:

Thanks to LA7XK and others who helped to find out and test the settings.

73s, Erich, DK1TB
