Re: Satpc32 CAT tuning with ic-910h - I need help

I suspect that your two-transistor interface is not passing one of the COM 
port signals that SatPC32 requires...  I am using a CAT interface built from 
a PC board sold by FAR Circuits, based on a QST article.  It uses the MAX232 
chip, and works 100% FB with my 910H and SatPC32.
