Hi All,


I am planning to get started on the linear satellites and have bought a
G5500 rotator and two Wimo antennas for 2/70.


Before I put the rotator onto the roof I have been using it in the shack to
make sure it does what it should. However

when I get overhead passes, with the Flip 180 feature turned on, the rotator
doesn't take the antenna over the top, it still

stops at the maximum elevation and then turns to the new azimuth (not sure I
explained that very well).


Also, I have set SATPC to A+ hoping that the software would automatically
switch to the next satellite - it doesn't.


What am I doing wrong guys?


Is there a friendly operator in the Hertfordshire area of the UK I can make
contact with?


Thanks in advance
