The same commands to controllers for bot GS232A & GS232B protocols, but diferent answers from controllers for position request:
GS-232A - answer to C2 command is +0aaa+0eee
GS-232B - answer to C2 command is AZ=aaa EL=eee
GS-232A - answer to C command is +0aaa
GS-232B - answer to C command is AZ=aaa
GS-232A - answer to B command is +0eee
GS-232B - answer to B command is EL=eee
Maybe you can find other differences, but only these were interesting for me when I wrote my software for rotators control - http://www.qsl.net/yo3dmu/index_Page346.htm
