I'm not quite sure what to suggest here; it sounds like you've done everything right. The 'invalid frequency' message would suggest there is a problem with FSUIPC though. The key originally provided with SBRelay (which is needed for multiplayer to see other aircraft, but you can use Squawkbox without by clicking 'no multiplayer' on startup) may be incorrect. Check that you entered the following:



One way to check to see if you have got Squawkbox and FSUIPC interacting properly, is to try one of the 'dot' commands. In the main Squawkbox window, type

.x 1234

A message should appear to say 'XPDR SET' and your transponder should change to 1234. If it doesn't, then that's another sure sign there's something wrong with the FSUIPC link.

Let me know how you get on.
