Hello Jim,

You can try my PstRotator program  http://www.qsl.net/yo3dmu/index_Page346.htm .It can be used like a standalone satellites tracking program, or like an interface between a satellites tracking program (SatPC32, Nova for Windows, Orbitron, HRD Satellite, Sat Explorer, WinOrbit, WXtrack, GPredict, HalloSat, SDR-RADIO) and your rotor controllers.The program supports separate rotor controllers for azimuth and elevation (in any combination), and also a single controller for both azimuth & elevation.The M2 RC2800PX (AZ / EL) rotor control boxes are supported, of course.

Does anyone know of a program, or a rotor driver for a tracking program, 
that works with the M2 RX2800PX rotor control boxes?  They use a serial 
interface.  It works something like this
The computer sends "A<CR>" and the rotor control box sends back the 
current azimuth
Computer sends "E<CR>" and rotor sends back current elevation
Computer sends "A68.4<CR>" and the rotor goes to azimuth 68.4


Any ideas on a tracker that talks that language?
