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.
