I'm back on the amsat-bb.

I need help finding info on a UniTrack-2000.  I've had it since 
around 2000 but never installed it.  Now there is no info on the 
internet, so hoping someone here might have a lead or have the 
manual.  There is a link to the Uni-Track 2003:

but no help on the Uni-Track 2000.

I have the unit and I/F cable for the Yaesu-B5400 az-el rotator.  The 
cable has the proper 8-pin DIN to connect to the Yaesu and three 
other wires, one of which is power.  The other two are two-wire 
shielded cables, one of which is marked   ECP0=red and ECP1=blk.

One issue is the Uni-Track uses a printer port I/F to a computer 
(DB-25), but computers are no longer made with printer ports.  I 
wonder if there is a conversion cable to USB jack, or maybe a printer 
port card (PCI buss)?

I just bought a replacement B5400 controller for the broken one I 
have, so I will be able to restore my satellite antenna 
system.  B5400 rotator is in good shape.
