Orbitron - Not getting elevation to rotor

Im using Orbitron & WispDDE to control my Fox Delta interface and Yaesu
G-5500 rotor. When a satellite Im tracking passes over, it turns the AZ
rotor but not the EL. I know it can control the EL, because if I manually
point it some degrees up, it will take it back down to -3 degrees as it

why it holds it flat for the duration?
