Thanks for the kick! I have now updated my pages with the LVB Tracker 2 that
autonomously tracks.

I am looking for testers!

If you have an original LVB Tracker, all you need is to purchase (or get a
sample) a 18F2620-I/SP available at
http://buy.microchip.com/productsearch.aspx?Keywords=18f2620-I/SP for $9.35
in one-off quantities.

If you don't already have an LVB Tracker, you can purchase PCBs and kits
from http://www.uk.amsat.org/shop/Hardware/lvb_tracker.php

The user interface has deliberately been kept uber simple, so maybe even
Cliff will be happy! After all, with only four buttons and a 16x2 line text
display there wasn't much I could do to complicate it.
