Hi Bill, 

You're going to love automated tracking...

The current favorite in my shack is the LVB Tracker, available from just a bare board to a completely assembled, plug/play box with backlit LCD--assembled masterfully from one of AMSAT's own members--Mike, WB8CXO!


AMSAT-UK sells a kit of all parts, too!  Just visit their store online as well...

>OK, a newbee question about interfacing rotors. I have a Yaesu 5500 and I run PCSat32. What do I need between the rotor and the computer? I would like a few options. Do I need the Yaesu 232 interface box or will a generic box do the job. If a generic box will work, which are the best for satellite work with PCSat32?
