Although I have an old Unitrack-2000 radio/rotor interface, I decided 
to go KISS and bought a LVB Tracker from Amsat; arrived on 
Saturday.  Time is sometimes more important than money.

The LVB tracker just plugs into my B5400 and connects to my computer 
via a USB/RS-232 conversion cable.  Sits very nicely on top of my 
B5400 control box.  Its plug-n-play with SatPC32.

I may "dink" with the Unitrack someday as it does connect for 
auto-tuning the radio, but it requires a parallel port for connecting 
to the computer (not many of them still running).  I've only had the 
unitrack for 16-years sitting in a drawer.
