[Linrad] Re: CAT control from MAP65-IQ

Hi Gabriel and all,

Your idea is exactly the right thing to do.  I have an external program 
coded for my own station that takes care of tracking the moon, selecting 
the desired band (from 1.8 MHz to 2.3 GHz), and setting the Tx 
frequency.  This program reads the file azel.dat to get sun/moon 
pointing information and the specified QSO frequency.

When you click the MAP65 button "Set Tx Freq", the tx frequency 
(actually, the offset from band edge in kHz) is written to azel.dat. 
The number following the frequency is set to 1; one second later it 
reverts to 0.  The external program watches for the second number to 
change from 0 to 1; when it does to, the frequency is set to the
