Re: Wisp & XP



 I run WiSP with a KCT card here under XP PRO. Only problem is you need to
run another program to control the rotor and doppler tuning! I run SatPC32
to control the rotor and my 847, and WiSP to open and close different
digital sats I'm working. Or I'm using WiSP for an MSPE scheduler, if you
will.  You can also run MSPE standalone, with SatPC32 but lose the WiSP
scheduler. This all works for me. In fact it works so well , I see no reason
to go back to WiSP standalone. If you want to try this you can download a
full version of SatPC32 to try out, cost if you buy is $45, all of which
goes to AMSAT/NA....
