Satellite tracking VFOs Uplink Downlink with external radio request

Unread post by SM0TGU »

Hi (Simon) and all!
The external radio in satellite tracking is working very good for FM satellites, I have done some QSOs with an IC-705 as TX rig. The possibility to adjust the frequency from the IC-705 is very good.
But, for transponder sats with SSB, for exemple RS-44, it gets hard to use SDR Console external radio as the RX (SDR) and TX (external radio) VFOs are not linked. So you have to manually go to the correct frequency with the external radio.

So, as a feature request, I would like the possibility to link the RX and TX VFO just like all the other softwares for satellite tracking (for example PstRotator).
It should be possible to link the VFO with:
  • Reverse (when one VFO goes up in frq the other goes down)
  • Normal (when one VFO goes up in frq the other also goes up)
  • None (no linking at all. This can be used when you temporary would like to adjust the VFOs separately.)

I'm using SDR Console more and more for satellites and tracking VFOs would be a great function.
@simon What do you think about this, it it possible?

Seconded, would make the satellites function much more robust.
