Re: Solving the need for ISA or USB slots and Serial Ports

A belated comment on this subject but...

How much effort/cost is required for an Ethernet interface on the 
rotator controller, rather than USB/serial/parallel/etc? As more people 
end up with Ethernet on their home/ham computers, the idea of having 
the rotator on the network seems appealing - 'just' connect it to the 
hub/router/switch and any machine could operate it. Anybody have 
experience with this? Or thoughts in general?
