Hello there. I'm here because I've run into a wall and need some help or instruction.
I've worked through the setup of Gpredict on Windows, and I have radio control sort of working on my Yaesu FT-991A.
By 'sort of working' I mean that when I engage the radio control the radio will tune to the receive (downlink) frequency, and when I select "track" the receive frequency "tracks" the doppler correction the program indicates.
What does NOT seem to happen is any required mode change setting the radio to FM, CW or whatever mode that I have selected in the program for the transponder - whatever mode the radio was in when the program takes over via CAT is where it stays unless I manually set the correct mode.
Nor does it appear that the transmit (uplink) split is created so that when the radio is keyed it transmits on the uplink frequency. Keying the radio transmits on the downlink frequency only.
Is this normal? If so then this program probably won't work for me as I plan on actually working the birds instead of just listening to them. I can live with this if so but it would have saved me many hours of figuring out how to get to where I am now.
If the program should be appropriately setting mode and transmit/receive splits based on the GUI settings then somethings not quite right with my setup, and I can't sort out what that might be.
