There is a new driver for SatPC32 to support the new (cheaper) Labjack
U3 USB rotor controller. For details about downloading and installing
the driver, look at the bottom of DK1TB's "Downloads" page.
NLSA no longer sells the "piggyback" PCB that interfaces a Labjack USB
controller to a Yaesu az/el rotor. But Erich Eichmann DK1TB reports
that it's easy to build the interface on a perfboard. At the bottom of
the Downloads page are links to schematic drawings of Labjack U3 and U12
Yaesu rotor interfaces. And a link to a photo of his homebrew U3 interface.
