Many of us are using USB to RS232 adaptors, mainly for connecting the
station PC to transceivers CAT control, ROTOR controllers, and TNCs were
Although it seems that most, if not all, of the software programs work well
under Windows 10, and updated drivers can be downloaded for most of the
hardware, relatively old USB to RS232 adaptors might have chip sets that
are not supported anymore with drivers for above Windows 7 (i.e. Windows 8
and Windows 10).
There is a utility to check the chip set version provided by the vendor.
It is highly recommended to check before starting the upgrade :)

On the 14:45 utc pass of NO-84 I saw the FM transmitter turned on
continuously indicating someone was sending, but there was nothing on
the down link except the telemetry at 312 Hz. This went on for many
cycles of telemetry.
Was someone calling CQ or trying to answer my CQ?
If so, try moving your PSK31 signal lower in frequency, and don't forget
to update TLE's if you are using the DopplerPSK program.

But the PSK31 downlink is FM on 435.350 where you can hear the waterfall
signals and decode them using any PSK31 software.
Also the APRS downlink is FM on 145.825 too.
