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?
