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



My interface works 100% correctly for n1mm logger.
I also am guessing that i am real close to having it working the way it is
supposed to.
I will mess with the intervals tonight and review all the settings. I will
probably reinstall the software
when martha sends me my cd.

Thanks
