*For anyone who is curious, the USB-UIRT / PstRotator solution works

*For someone like me who has never had a rotator, it's just amazing to be
able to point a directional antenna and have it follow satellite passes
automatically.  Since I try to keep my budget for this hobby on the low
side, I certainly never thought I would have an automatic satellite
tracking antenna setup for such a small expense.  *

*And, while elevation control would be great, I seem to do fine with an
AZ-only setup.  I'm decoding cubesat telemetry at elevations way lower than
I ever thought possible.*

*As others more experienced than myself have stated in the past, you can do
pretty well with a fixed elevation setup like this.*
