After a bit of futzing around a couple of weeks ago (with the help of
the reflector here) I got CT939 to control my Orion 2800.  But now it
doesn't work right!  I load COMTSR1, run CT, enter "45" in the callsign
field and hit CTRL-F10.  At the bottom of CT it says "Rotor 1 to 11522 degrees"
where it used to say "Rotor 1 to 45 degrees" and turns to something other
than 45 degrees (where it turns depends upon where it starts).  If I
enter "DL" in the callsign field and hit CTRL-F10, , 

I get "Domain error in acos" entered in the callsign field immediately
after "DL" and the computer locks up - won't even recongnize the
three finger salute.  The rotor still can be controlled by my Telix
communications package via com1 perfectly, so I don't think it's a computer

BTW, the wierd direction varies with the heading entered; for example,
30 gave 122892 degrees, 31 gave 126988 degrees and 32 gave 8194 degrees.
