Re: computer controleld satellite radio



Don't forget big brother, the TS2000X and its' other iterations.  This 
sure would cut down on the number of COM ports required for doppler, 
tracking and digital modes.

Got my fingers crossed that sooner rather than later, it will happen.

D7AG and TS2000X owner and happy with both.
