Hello Stephen, thanks for your reply, and hope your trip is going well.

Will check the main site.

Qsl on the awful documentation!

Have been doing SkyCommand for some time now, and love it. Was running 
across comments from other hams about never being able to get it to work 
when I would bring up the SkyCommand topic. So was attempting to getting 
some dialog going and to provide feedback on what it takes to make it 
work for them. Surprised I havent received any comments from those that 
wanted to use SkyCommand but couldnt get it to work .... hi
