Re: Advice needed on a rotor to mate with an Yeasu G-500B el rotor



Freeman,

Hello! I am planning to use my Ham II with a G500a for az/el. I'll be
interested to see what you wind up with. I have thought about using
FodTrack, but haven't really looked into it that much. I believe that a
basic schematic is included with the software:

Good luck and 73,
