+2 for the Fox Delta kits!
After beating around with an FODTrack, and a "Satellite Tracker Sr.", I
bought one of the Fox Delta kits.
I had it built in a few hours, and up, calibrated, and running a couple
of hours after I set my station up out on the back porch.
Works *perfectly* with SatPC2 using the "Easycom" protocol, and as
someone else said here, now that I have my station under full PC
control, I can concentrate on communicating!
73, Jim
