Re: IGate and Satellite's

APRSIS32 has no built in rig control.  I am not sure how much "control" the D710 does through the computer.  I think it is more for programming the memeory, and voice option in an APRS message.

You will need something like Ham Radio Deluxe or other radio application that includes satellite tracking.
I was able to download Orbitron 3.71 and MyDDE, connect it to HDSDR with <F7> Options then "DDE to HDSDR".
The frequency in HDSDR seemed to be tracking.  Just did this as a test, so can't speak to how well it works.
  Might be able to try this later in the week.

This could work with other applications.

Thanks on that find!

which makes me ask if it's possible to auto switch freq's by APRSIS/32 ?
Or by some other program compatible with all this?

Seems a dozen or more are on various 437mHz QRG's.

I have PSTRotator which can auto-switch to the next current in a list I
make. I am doubtful it can change the D710GA freq ... however, I will
ask over on their "board".

So, my first goal would be to program all those "new" APRS qand AX.25
birds in then auto-track and see if they are really there for me to
hear/decode ... then try and work someone off them

thus the need to have some program pick the bird and switch me wee
D710GA to said QRG .... as I doubt seriously I am about to sit hear 24/7
looking for them , hi hi

Am not sure why I iGate myself as I thought ZI have the set to NOT Gate ME

some others there  ... confuse me, it seems a few guys can TCP to me
then IS-RF to the satellites? Fine by me but it's a new one on me.


I said .. I am learning, didn't I ? hi hi
