      Hi Sid

      I seems to have fixed the frequency hopping by doing a usbsoftrock -a
      calibrate
      however I can't seem to move the output frequency of the 570

      I decided to the commands you listed here is the out come...


      ian@jalus:~$ usbsoftrock -vv status
      I2C Address = 55
      fXtall = 114.285000
      multiplier = 4.000000
      startupFreq = 56.320000
      Version : 15.12
      USB SerialID: PE0FKO-0
      Startup Freq: 7.050000 (x 4.00)
      Xtall Freq : 28.200000
      Smooth Tune : 3500 PPM
      Si570 I2C : 55 Hex
      BPF Enabled: 0
      ian@jalus:~$

      ian@jalus:~$ usbsoftrock -vv set freq
      I2C Address = 55
      fXtall = 114.285000
      multiplier = 4.000000
      startupFreq = 56.320000
      Version : 15.12
      Segmentation fault

      Look at that seq fault ! seems that if I give it a freq the program will not
      seg fault but the frequency will not move either.....

      I'm going to rebuild the usbsoftrock source on my current ubuntu 10.4 as
      it was compiled on the version before 10.4 and see if that helps the seq
      fault...

      Regards
      Ian
