I've used a Kenwood TS-790A with WISP32 for years and have not had the
problem that you describe.  Make sure that the KCT/T driver is configured
properly in WISP/SETUP with the correct baud rate, stop bits, etc.  There
is something strange about the Kenwood setup in this regard, 4800 baud and
2 stop bits???  I don't fuly remember.

Also, make sure the satellites are configured appropriately in WISP.  With
regard to FM, as I recall there are several choices, FM, FM-N, FM-W.  Seems
like I recall that only "FM" works, not the others.... experiment and see.

I don't think the problem is due to the RR.DLL or your rig.  There is a
SatDemo program that was supplied by Joe Holman with RR.DLL.  You can use
this to "manually" try different settings for the radio.  This may be a
good way to see where the problem lies.  If SatDemo works, then the problem
must be in the WISP setup.

Good luck!
