I need some advice. I have been trying to run Sat32PC to track satellites with my G5500 rotor and LVB Tracker. It seems I am running into one problem after another. Many times the program stops working when I get towards a lower elevation while tracking the satellite. I get most of the pass and then everything stops. I cannot park the rotor and must reboot the computer as restarting the program gives com errors. This afternoon Sat32PC was tracking a ghost. It clearly thought something was flying above. The only satellite I had selected was FO-29 and it definitely was well past a fly over. In fact, I could not find an amateur satellite that was anywhere that the program should be tracking. I would really like to get the bugs out as I plan to use my Panasonic Toughbook in a portable operation. I am using the XP Professional operating system with the USB communicating with the LVB Tracker. I also have a Macbook and MacDoppler has operated flawlessly. It does what it is suppose to do and does it well. Please no flame wars over Mac vs PC. I use both and basically am happy with both. On Sat32PC, the Keps are updated so I am not feeding the controller wrong info. On the screen, the satellite position is visibly correct. On the bottom of the screen the Azimuth / Elevation were wrong when it was tracking the ghost. I have two Toughbooks and both exhibit the same problem. Has anyone had the same or similar problems?
