Re: Please Help - I Need Yaesu G5400B Rotor Computer Interface Box Info.

Hi Richard:

After posting a similar question to the AMSAT BB a couple of months ago I
discovered that the ridiculously priced RS-232 interface from Yaesu is not
needed with the either TrackBox, Kansas City Tracker, or FODTrack.

I already had a Kansas City Tracker with tuner but had never set it up, but
after hearing about the TrackBox I ordered one because I want to be able to
track the satellites without having to have the PC turned on.  The TrackBox
interfaces directly to the G-5400B control box.

I received my TrackBox kit a couple of weeks ago.  I was impressed with the
quality of the components, documentation and the PCB.  It is strictly 1st
class.  The kits are available from Jack Davis.  I have attached his info
