Congrats to Stefan and Clint on the ISS Field Day contacts!
I heard Reid make a couple of contacts, but was too busy trying to make the CAT control in SatPC32 work with my 24 year old IC-970H. It works now although with some irritating limitations on the CAT side. The rotor control side works fine. Rather than wasting several hours, I should have just plugged it into my MacBookPro and fired up MacDoppler. It took all of 5 minutes to get up and running with full CAT control and then make a Field Day contact on AO-73.
So on to the next “challenge” … My AO-16 era LL Grace DSP-93 isn’t quite current anymore.
Any recommendations on current equipment and/or software to decode 1k2 BPSK telemetry, and 9600 FSK etc. ??

Yes, ISS (Reid Wiseman) was active again on the last past (2 min ago). He is getting a workout :-) and is doing a fantastic job managing the calls.
Thanks Reid and NASA, that was a special gift for field day.
