  I went to the AMSAT Store to purchase PCSAT32 and it's CLOSED until further notice (sigh) 
  To buy anything, you have to call "Martha", but she is out of town until the 25th. 
  I have heard GREAT things about PCSAT32, and in the couple times I've played with it I haven't had a lot of time to dig deeply into it.
  You are right that NOVA does not control Doppler (as far as I can see). 
  I have played quite a bit with Ham Radio Deluxe, and I think it's a GREAT program. 
  I wonder if anyone has got it to work with WiSP & the GS-232B?

  The last I knew, Nova didn't control Doppler by itself only rotor control. 
  Somebody correct me if I'm wrong about this. 
  SatPC32 is the software to go with for both rotor and Doppler control. 
  Somebody out there should have a 910 set up with SatPC32! 
  SatPC32 is somewhat hard to get going and operate but runs really well once you get used to it. 
  Look in your 910 manual and see if there is an display indicator that comes on when you establish communications between the radio and the PC. This might tell you if you are successful in communicating with the rig.
  If I can be any help please email. I'm using an FT-847, but I have a detailed setup procedure around here somewhere. 
  Please let us know if you are having any success.

  Hi Scott, 
I am using the GS-232B/G-5500 with SatPC32 (Yaesu_GS-232 rotor 
and a Kenwood TS-2000X and it works very well. I haven't tried it with Nova. 
SatPC32 does have a radio selection for the 910H so I presume SatPC32 would control both Doppler and your rotor just fine. You could download the trial version (http://www.dk1tb.de/satpcsetup_a.ZIP) and give it a try. If you are a member of AMSAT then it would only be $45 to register the application.
  SatPC32 is a little complex at first; however, if you spend some time to get comfortable with it, I am sure you will like it.
  I hope you get everything working.
