Testing today - use the SoundModem with the UISS program.  Launch SoundModem first since UISS will also launch the 1200 baud version of SoundModem, which you don't need and should close. But the HS version needs to be launched first to grab port 8000.

Here are the SoundModem settings for FS3:

Use COM5 for the PTT port for Rigblaster to key the 847 on 2 meters. Set the VIA call in UISS to PFS3-1.

Setting up DopplerPSK

The DopplerPSK program is used to correct a PSK signal for Doppler shift. It changes the audio frequency of the transmitted signal to do this compensation. The program download site is http://www.frontiernet.net/~aflowers/dopplerpsk/dopplerpsk.html and it has been installed at C:\Users\user\Downloads\DopplerPSK_0.2.zip\DopplerPSK_0.2 on the W2MMD satellite computer.It uses Java, which has been installed (Version 8 Update 161 uninstalled, newer version installed ). Run the program from the shortcut on the Start menu. Looks like this:
Set the Audio Device on the menu to Rigblaster TX and set the Rigblaster TX switch to VOX (down position). This will key the 847.
