Hi Bob,

I am going to copy AMSAT-BB because this will help some others I hope!

Here is what works well for me and the FuncubeDongle Pro + and FoxTelem

1-On main screen, "Check" Track Doppler and Find Signal; I use default
values in the boxes (15.0dB, 6.0dB)

2-Under the Spacecraft Menu, go to both Fox-1Cliff and Fox-1D parameter
screens and "Uncheck"  Track when Find Signal Enabled

3-Under the Spacecraft Menu, go to Fox-1A and "Check" Track when Find
Signal Enabled; I use Downlink=145979, Lower Freq. Bound=145973, Upper
Freq. Bound=145985

THAT should get your good, fast lock on the Fox-1A signal.    Works well
here setup like that.

Let me know how you make out!
