I am trying to set up SatPC32 ver 12.8c "unregistered" with two FT-817s. My problem is that there is no CAT control on radio 1. Radio 2 works perfectly. Here is the setup: Radio 1, com port 2, delay 70 (tried 110 also) Radio 2, com port 5 Checked Atom. RX/TX change only (no other boxes checked but tried the others) As I change from sat to sat, Radio 2 will change freq and be steered but there is no response from Radio 1 If I remove Radio 2 (unplug the USB cable) and configure only a radio 1, there is no CAT control of radio 1. Computer is an HP Mini running Win7 Watching Device Manager, I can unplug either USB cable and see port 2 or port 5 come and go as I plug and unplug.
I have switched radios then switched the CAT USB cables (they are FTDI). Still radio 1 does not change.
Leaving the radios plugged in to the same computer, I exited SatPC32 and started HRD and tested for CAT operation on each radio one at a time and they both work.
My question: Why no CAT for radio 1? Why no error message? Are there any other troubleshooting steps I can take?
I have searched just about everywhere on-line and see no one else having this problem. I have found that many have success with the dual non-duplex transceivers configuration.
Any help would be appreciated. Thanks, Larry W7DGP
