An inexpensive solution is the FD ST1 kit. See my mini-review here in the archives and also


It uses the EasyComm interface.

What do I need to connect my G-5400B to my computer in order to  
automate satellite antenna tracking?

I'm current using Ham Radio Deluxe.  I've heard of the LVB tracker,  
and the GS-232 but I wonder if there is a cheaper or easier solution,  
being that the software program now does a lot of the functions (or so  
I believe it does).
