Run the rotator to it's (az or el) limit switch. (0 or +4.5VDC is what
it's supposed to be).

Adjust the meter reading to match the rotator on the +4.5VDC end.

There are seperate pots for the aux output (az and el) that drives a controller.

First do the G-5500 control box, then check with a meter that the aux
high and low indication voltages (0-4.5VDC) are somewhere in the realm
of reality. The tracker will "calibrate" out minor inaccuracies.

I learn more from making mistakes than anything else.
