I use the Easy Rotor Control from Germany http://easy-rotor-control.com/ I
have a discontinued version but the ERC-M is what they have now. It has
calibration software and is spot on as far as tracking goes. Interfaces with
SatPC very easily and will move AZ and EL at the same time.
Have Fun !

Subject: [amsat-bb] Yaesu Rotor G5400B
Picked up a like new Yaesu G5400B Az/El rotor and controller tonight from a
friend. I'm thrilled to add to the station, but need some advice on how to
best interface this rotor for computer control working with SATPC32.
Any quirks, tricks, or other issues I should be aware of before installing?
It's going inside the attic, so weatherproofing is a non-issue.
As always, grateful for the advice. The satellite community is one of the
most generous with sharing information, and as a newcomer I'm thankful.
