Re: WISP GSC Question Doppler display



Hi Don,

 When you say does not show any Doppler, I am assuming that you mean the 
Doppler setting in the Tracking window on the bottom of the GSC screen. 
Also assuming that you mean the Tracking window and you have selected that 
satellite to TRACK.

This was a good question, took me a while to figure it out.  Initially I 
thought it was because there weren't U/D frequencies in the Sat Setup.  But 
tested this and that didn't help.  Turns out the Tracking window and the 
Graphic Track use a different frequecy to determine Doppler than the main 
window.

Pull up the Graphic Tracking from GSC
Select Tracking
Select Edit Keps
Add the downlink freq in the Beacon freq area.

Voila,  you have Doppler in the GSC Tracking window and in the Graphic 
Tracking window.
