Happened to be up very late, trying to finish some work. My computer 
alerted me that SO-50 was rising, and even though it was 4AM, I thought 
I'd take a chance that someone might be on the bird.

All efforts to raise the bird failed, even though it was a very high 
elevation pass. I realized that the bird had "timed out" and needed to 
be activated. Not something I was used to thinking about considering how 
busy SO-50 usually is. I searched in vain to try to figure out how 
SATPC32 was setting the 67.0 Hz PL tone. I figured I could modify that 
setting to make it transmit 74.4 Hz instead. But no joy.

I know this can be set in the rig's menu, but I'd rather have a separate 
setting in SATPC32 for those rare passes when SO-50 is silent. Can 
someone walk me through how to edit the necessary file(s) and set this 
up? Thanks in advance from a night owl!
