I just wanted to follow up. I've managed to release an initial version
of the software. Windows users may note that it's the only open source
windows native satellite tracking app (That I know of). Linux users may
want to note that it's a true universal binary written on .NET/mono.
It does implement the 'one true tuning' method for linear modes, but I
still haven't managed a successful linear contact.
I've attempted to keep the learning curve as shallow as possible for
those who may be interested in experimenting with the code. I'm working
on an article which focuses on the architecture of it, and how I imagine
that it can promote a little more experimentation at the software level.
I currently only support Icom radios and the GS-232B (since that's all I
own), but will add any hardware that someone can offer to beta test.
Even if it doesn't support your hardware, try it out. I welcome your
feedback - and bug reports!
Unfortunately the installer doesn't include the two dependencies, so
most likely, you'll need two other downloads before it'll work...
The installation instructions are:
