"I'm currently implementing a rotator controller (AZ only) for the various low-cost antenna rotators like channel master and want to use the EASYCOM 2 protocol as one of the protocols to implement.  Currently the controller works quite well and the YAESU protocol is already implemented. I've only found very basic documentation about easycom 2 on the internet (http://www.amsat.org/amsat/ftp/software/win32/wisp/easycomm.txt) and I would ask you if you can provide more detailed protocol descriptions.  

"The question is especially regarding the OP command (setting an output with a number to a state ??) as well as the response to empty AZ or EL commands, which may be interpreted as inquiries. Any information would be of great help.

You've found the only protocol definition I know about.  Does anyone on the BB know of a better specification document for the Easycom 2 protocol?
