You can try my PstRotator program http://www.qsl.net/yo3dmu/index_Page346.htm .It can be used like a standalone satellites tracking program, or like an interface between a satellites tracking program (SatPC32, Nova for Windows, Orbitron, HRD Satellite, Sat Explorer, WinOrbit, WXtrack, GPredict, HalloSat, SDR-RADIO) and your rotor controllers.The program supports separate rotor controllers for azimuth and elevation (in any combination), and also a single controller for both azimuth & elevation.The M2 RC2800PX (AZ / EL) rotor control boxes are supported, of course.

Subject: [amsat-bb] Driver for M2 rotors
Does anyone know of a program, or a rotor driver for a tracking program,
that works with the M2 RX2800PX rotor control boxes? They use a serial
interface. It works something like this
The computer sends "A<CR>" and the rotor control box sends back the
Computer sends "E<CR>" and rotor sends back current elevation
Computer sends "A68.4<CR>" and the rotor goes to azimuth 68.4
Any ideas on a tracker that talks that language?
