RE: Rotors



Look in the ARRL Satellite Anthology.  I saw an article there that I may use
when I get closer to  setting up automated tracking.

Subject: [amsat-bb] Rotors


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
