   SATCONTROL_FCD Ver 0.9.2 Update



12.Download 'Newer_ExtIO_FCD_G0MJW.dll' in 'ExtIO_FCD.dll G0MJW' folder, and remove
   'Newer_' part in the file name, and put it into your FCD, HDSDR folder etc.
   It is neccessary when you check in the box of 'connect FUNcube dongle' in
   'satcontrol_fcd.exe' and HDSDR operation.

   'FCD returns Hz frequency' in 'FCD Control - G0MJW'.
   In case of my FCD, FO-29 -> +46.18kHz, CO-65 -> +46.37kHz, 145MHz -> +15kHz.

   Run HDSDR -> Set frequency in HDSDR -> Run satcontrol_fcd
    -> Check "connect FUNcube dongle" -> Expert -> Frequency Offsets -> HDSDR "Start"
