Season's best wishes all.
I have been trying to get some of DK3WN's software running and have an
issue I have yet been able to resolve.
Behavior is the same on two different computers, one a laptop with Win10
32 bit and the other a desktop with Win7 64 bit.
The problem software is agw_online_kiss_plus.
I have registered (as administrator) the require ocx's as provided by
DK3WN on his website and have installed vb run time libraries sp6 also
as provided on his website.
the agw_onlinekiss.ini file is configured correctly (as far as I can
tell). I have a small tle file (with two element sets) and satellite
names do not have any spaces.
The problem encountered is that when I attempt to run
agw_online_kiss_plus.exe I get a "Run time error '53' file not found"
No file name for the "file not found" is given. When I search for that
error code i.e. 53 online I get references to a file called solver32.dll
which is related to EXCEL.
I do not have Microsoft Office (i.e. word, excel, etc) installed.

Couldn’t you use a virtual comm port ? I use one with AC Log, FLdigi and my Elecraft. In fact, Win4Ksuite makes use of them as well.
The problem with the world is that the intelligent people are full of doubts, while the stupid ones are full of confidence.
Just a friendly reminder to beginners on the FM satellites (maybe you
just got a new radio for Christmas), that there is an established
protocol for calling on the FM birds and "CQ satellite" isn't it.
I strongly urge anyone new to the satellites to check out this pdf of
best practices for the FM satellites:
If you are "CQing" on an FM bird you are taking up time that could be
going into actual QSOs.
For anyone else who is having trouble with this,
I thought I would have another look at the FUNCube Dashboard.
Latest version is 1.0.1044.1.
Under "File>Settings" there is an "Audio" Tab.
Selecting Cable Output VB-Audio Virtual works for me.
You can get the Flex Radio output to appear in that box (DAX Audio RX1?).
73 and Merry Christmas,

On December 24, 1968, Apollo 8 with Frank Borman, Jim Lovell, and Bill
Anders reached and went into orbit around the moon, becoming the first
to do so. The next day, the Service Propulsion System was fired,
enabling them to start their return trip.
The mission was made possible by the work of someone who was born on
December 25, 1642. His name was Isaac Newton, the greatest scientist
that ever lived. If I recall correctly, the crew gave Sir Isaac
credit as it was his laws of motion and gravitation that allowed
Apollo 8 to go from the earth to the moon and then return.
Aside from being the first time that men reached the moon, Apollo 8 is
likely best remembered for this:
Thank you, gentlemen and thank you, Sir Isaac. I was a teenager in
junior high school when it happened. It was a grand time to be alive.
73s, Merry Christmas, Frohes Weihnachtsfest, and joyeux Noel

Thanks for the URL.
That Apollo 8 photo actually wasn't the first earthrise that was seen.
During the Lunar Orbiter program, one of the spacecraft took a rather
fuzzy and indistinct picture of that same view. The lack of detail
led to some people thinking that it was a hoax.
A few years ago, some amateur enthusiasts decided to take some of the
Lunar Orbiter data tapes and reprocess them with up-to-date equipment
and filtering methods. The result was that the first earthrise
picture turned out to be almost as good as what the astronauts took
with their Hasselblad cameras or what more recent lunar spacecraft
One unexpected benefit of doing that was that it provided valuable
data for lunar scientists. It gave them a basis by which to compare
more recent views of lunar terrain and seeing what might have changed
since the late 1960s.

I've got that picture as the desktop background on one of my computers.

How True ,
The Icom IC-9700 will be released in January 2019 in Japan for 188,000
yen ($1,657 USD).
"Delivery times may vary, depending on the country or region." "The
IC-9700 is the perfect side-by-side companion to the IC-7300 HF radio.
They are the same size and have almost identical ergonomics. Using the
IC-9700 and IC-7300 creates an ideal, compact radio station covering
the HF, 144, 430 and 1200 MHz bands."
Who is getting one? :-)
