All good points!  I just hope I was not one that was causing QRM on SO50.

I just recently have my IC910H working with both rotor control and
CAT for the radio for Doppler  control.  I have noticed that at
times the uplink freq can be off.  I am working on getting it tweaked in.

I have  the LVB controller and Yeasu G5500 Rotator and I am finally
getting it to work for me...Had com port problems....
