I have had one of the original LVB units AMSAT made as the fundraiser(visit
AMSAT website to purchase). It has worked flawlessly. It is a bit of a
challenge to put it in place and calibrate if you have NOT ever set up
something like this before. I have had many experiences doing so and it
didn't take long for me to have it up and running. Putting the USB software
to run it via your computer may take some re-reading of the instructions but
it all comes out easy and simple to let happen.
I use this under PCsat32 and also NOVA. Tracks fine.
I use a second one to demo at hamfests with a portable setup to show how it
functions. I also did this at Field Day for my local club with the help of
another AMSAT veteran.
It has been a great addition to my shack to make it one less thing I have to
worry about while making these LEO passes work.
P.S. I can't wait for an HEO to buzz up the satellite activity- I'll be at
Sussex County, NJ Hamfest 7/12/09 to demo this WX permitting.
