I Need some help getting a weather fax

This is driving me nuts. And I'm sure my question has been previously answered in the multiple forums.

In 2006 we sailed across the Pacific to Australia and used sailmail and GetFax with a ICOM 800 and Pactor modem IIe - no issues.

We no longer belong to Sailmail- not doing enough cruising to warrant it unfortunately.
So have downloaded JV Comm. Windows 7 - plugged in my PactorIIe to the appropiate port (via RS323 cable) - I have a green light on my Pactor Fax/SSTV - a good signal on the Icom (Australian VMC)
and I think my settings in the JV Comm programme are all wrong.
The attached image was with Baud 115200 and 11025 Data rate
Can I please get some help with the required settings.

Random thought- Is the radio definitely set to USB? Years ago I had weird images because the radio was set to LSB but can't remember if they looked like that or not, might be worth checking.
