Hi Bill,

I have a VU5K, and tried that.  Everything looked rock steady using the parameters you specified.

<Subject: [amsat-bb] Flex-5000 "PA Info" Display Bug During 
<I have been active on the satellites lately with my Flex-5000 using 
<external transverters.  PowerSDR version 2.6.4.
<I have noticed an error in the PA Info display, Ctrl-Shift-I, 
<when I am 
<in mode B and transmit is enabled. The Temp: will read  very unusual 
<temperatures, i.e. 572, intermittently for a moment. Values 
<change, but 
<seem to be repetitive. I have seen large negative F values also. The 
<Voltage: also reads 0 briefly sometimes.The radio appears to function 
<normally when this occurs.
<This occurs even if the TX Drive is set to 0.
<I am running SatPC32 V.12.8b to control the uplink and downlink 
<frequencies using x10 Speed. The problem seems to only occur 
<when CAT is 
<enabled on SatPC32.
<This seems like a conflict between variables used by PowerSDR's CAT 
<control and the PA Info routines.
<Is anyone else using a Flex-5000 seeing this?
