SatPC32 version 11.3 is released



Erich Eichmann DK1TB has released SatPC32 ver. 11.3.  Here's a summary of
the new features:

1. SatPC32 now supports the subaudible-tone-functions of the Icom IC-910H,
   Yaesu FT-847, and FT-736R. The program can switch on the tone
   automatically when the user selects a satellite that requires a
subaudible tone
   on the uplink signal (at present only SO-50).  With Yaesu transceivers
the
   program also can set the tone frequency expected by the satellite.   The
CAT
   systems of other radios don't include commands for the
sub-tone-functions.

2. The program now interfaces with Uni_Trac 2003.  All hardware supported by
   Uni_Trac can now be used with SatPC32 - beyond the extensive hardware
   which can already be controlled directly by SatPC32.

3. A "general" DDE interface has been added to SatPC32 which outputs
   the rotor positions, downlink and uplink frequencies and modes and the
   MA value. The DDE string is updated every second, the format is exactly
   the same as the Wisp32 DDE string.  Third party client programs can
receive
   the SatPC32 results via this DDE interface and utilize them for their own
   purposes, i.e. to steer a particular interface.  The program package
includes
   demo client programs (EXE-files and source code in Visual Basic and
Delphi)
   which demonstrate how to access the interface.

4. In previous versions the bottom area of some windows was displayed
   incorrectly under Windows XP when the Window style property was set to
   "XP style". This problem has been fixed.

Screen shots and a description of the program's capabilities can be seen on
the author's web site:

You can also download a demo version there.  If you like it, you can
purchase a registration password by calling Martha at the AMSAT office or by
placing an online order at www.amsat.org.  DK1TB donated this software to
AMSAT, so all of your purchase price will go to support AMSAT activities.
