 The $200 is a great deal. I helped sell every one we had on hand at the
AMSAT booth in Dayton. Another perspective, about 2 years ago I replaced my
ISA bussed motherboard for a new one. The only ISA bussed mobo I could
find(that was under $500) cost $190. Other then the two ISA slots, it had
the comparable performance of a $35 mobo! My next computer upgrade for my
sat control system will use an LVB to control rotors. The Kansas City
tracker ISA card will be heading to the Smithsonian Institution....

Hi Myles,

Simply stated---this is a very functional and easy to use track box,
with exceptional attention to construction detail when purchased
already assembled by AMSAT (thanks, Mike Young!).   It's a very fair
price at US$200.  (Price out the parts to build one up...it's a deal).
 It's essentially plug in, calibrate, then play!
