Hi all,
Here is a pix of a demo I did in NJ with the LVB tracker attached to a G5500
Yaesu.  It isn't that big but it sure is a great attention getter at any
hamfest or demo you present.  This way you can show the LVB tracker actually
being used.. You need more space like outdoors for an arrow attached...-Have
a fun "Dramatic Sight!"

I have an inquiry from a gentleman who would like to show the "dramatic
sight" of a computer-controlled small Yagi tracking a satellite while in a
convention booth - but not necessarily a full-blown Yaesu G-5500.

If I am not making sense, just ask ... (grin)

He is thinking 12VDC, laptop, just a six-foot mast with an Arrow-like
antenna, Ham Radio Deluxe(?), "smaller" radio like a FT-817ND)?) ...

Brainstorming welcome!

Many thanks.
