Everyone,
What is a normal setup, there is an interface unit that goes in-between the
computer and the rotor control.  I have a Yaesu G5400 that has the DIN plug
in the rear that directly connects to the "LVB Tracker box" that I purchased
from AMSAT (a fundraiser for them and available for sale on their website).
It is easy to hook up and directly connects to many rotor software products-
The SATPC32 that AMSAT sells not only controls your rotor but it will
control your Doppler correction if you use it to tune your radio via another
port.
Check the web for other devices and schemes to control rotors.

Tim and all,

I'm starting to think I may have had a fantasy about rotor control...I have
a NIB Kenpro KR-5400A,(full az/el) which I have assumed could be controlled
directly by the SAT program in HRD without any other interface except the
controller that comes with the Kenpro. Is that not so? (I have not yet
installed the rotor, so no big deal ...yet)

Hmmmm...Ted, K7TRK
