1. Some other designs use a variable supply to calibrate the rotator
position - what does the LVB do ?
2. Does the LVB tracker get a command, move the antenna around, and shut out
any other commands, untill it gets the first command sorted ?
3. What does the LVB tracker show on the screen ?
4. What protocols does the LVB tracker work with ?
5. I heard mention that the LVB does a few samples of the A/D to make sure
it has a valid result from the pot's
6. The cct diagram shows two diodes, connected to each az and el a/d input,
what do they do ?
