I originally used the FODTrack interface, which I had the PC board made for 
by FAR Circuits (and now they carry it as a regular item).  It required a 
parallel printer port.  I recently switched to the SatTracker 688 from the 
ARRL to be compatible with a netbook that only has USB ports.

Both interfaces worked perfectly.
