Is there a FODTrack question?  It still works here.

All I know is IntantTrack worked with the Kansas city Tracker and the TSR 
for SASI uses that to communicate, but through the parallel port.  Someone 
here must know the KC tracker protocol. Not sure about how the TSR 
communicates with the SASI hardware, and I've never looked inside 
it.  Probably a couple of memory locations to store the AZ & EL locations 
from an A to D converter, and some way to send commands to control left 
right up & down.
