I am using the LVB tracker with the G-5500 and controlling them with the
My experience with this system has been very pleasing, straight forward and
plug & play. The documentation for the LVB is excellent and the same is
true for SatPC-32. Setting the calibration between the LVB and the G-5500
was a snap, with very easy to follow instructions.
Supporting AMSAT by purchasing the LVB is icing on the cake.
My 2 cents.
