Dear masat MEMBERS.
I HAVE TROUBLE WITH UNITRAC2003, I cant interface it with yaesu
g-5500, my antennas mechanical orientation is  east. it means that
when yaesu indoor unit arrows to north=0 my antennas 0 is east, and it
is not accord with any of  azimuth formats in unitrac getting started
file. i thinh that it is near to option 4 , this option is true for my
antennas mechanical orientation but  it is wrong for yaesu electrical
unit that shows the antennas orientation indoor. e.g. when satellite
in 270 AZ acording to unitrac, my antennas rotate to north but the
azimuth arrow to south in yaesu indoor unit,  and i cant recive any
I dont know what to do? I am really confused.
any help would be gratefully appreciated.
Best Regards.
