4) This is the Setup page.  In the left column, you will see “Correction Freq”.  This is the frequency the Starfire receiver is currently using.  Unclick the box where it says “Default” next to the correction frequency.

5)  When you unclick the default box, it may show a different frequency, or it may show the same, or it may show “NaN” like pictured below.  Regardless, click right on the white rectangle box where it shows the correction frequency or “NaN”.
