I have a strange issue with the IC-9700 & SatPC32 combo.
When running SatPC32 ((06/2019) to control my IC-9700 (FW 1.11), the downlink channel always uses the D-mode (USB-D, FM-D) instead the regular mode (USB, FM).
I can switch via the front-panel to USB/FM but selecting the next satellite switches back to D-mode.
I've resetted the IC-9700 to factory defaults and reconfigured the IC-9700 according the presets from DK1TB http://www.dk1tb.de/IC9700_settings_dt.htm - same behaviour.
Erich DK1TB, the autor of SatPC32, has no idea what causes this behaviour - but he's running FW 1.06 on his IC-9700 - maybe this causes the behaviour?!
Has anybody tested and/or experienced a similiar issue?
