The EA4TX controller has a built in USB/serial adaptor and will run many
rotators with or without Rotor manufacturer's supplied controller.
It speaks GS-232 which most software supports, implements 450 degree
rotators nicely

Wanting to upgrade my ham computer from XP/P4 to something newer and faster.
used Nova, AEA ST-1, and Yaesu G-5500 for ever.  Have a nice HP quad core
with W7, that I cannot get to work with the ST-1, says cannot initialize
Tried a couple of other units with same results, so I suspect it has
something to 
do with the newer parallel ports.

So what am I missing ???

I would prefer to use a USB port of course, but cannot find any controllers
that are ready to go, or will work with Nova.  I am trying to stay with Nova
the Yaesu G-5500

What is everyone else using these days?
