The K3NG Rotator Controller is an Arduino project that may require getting your hands dirty or (horrors!) plugging in a soldering iron. But it can be programmed for a wide range of rotators and input software.

Wanting to upgrade my ham computer from XP/P4 to something newer and faster.  Have 
used Nova, AEA ST-1, and Yaesu G-5500 for ever.  Have a nice HP quad core machine 
with W7, that I cannot get to work with the ST-1, says cannot initialize port. 
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 now 
that are ready to go, or will work with Nova.  I am trying to stay with Nova and 
the Yaesu G-5500

What is everyone else using these days?
