Re: Rotors

My idea is to install a Rotor-EZ controller in my Ham-IV controller
box, and drive that (pointing a HF antenna) from a different tracking
program (IT?), using Nova and a Uni_Trac box for the G5400 with the
satellite antenna array.

   Hello Everyone,

   I am looking for some ideas as to how I can connect two rotors (Azimuth)
   so they can track together either manually or by a tracking program. 
   My setup has all uplink equipment for AO-40 on a set of Yaesu G-5600 B
   rotors and I have converted a TVRO dish for down link on AO-40.
   I would like the azimuth on the dish (with a Ham 3 or 4 ? rotor ) to be
   controlled by the tracking program along with the rest of the antenna
   array that is about 40 feet away.

   Any ideas ???

   I would like to thank everyone in advance for any information with
   regards to this.

   Thanks and 73 de VE7WFG
