[amsat-bb] Making LVB Tracker USB work on W10

The DLP-USB232M uses a standard FTDI chip.  Normally any version of Windows
will have a version installed, but you can download it from FTDI.COM.

Just to make sure, you can install either the RS232 chip or the USB chip in
the LVB, but not both at the same time.

<I have a LVB Tracker /usb version.  My HP8100 computer operating W10

<When I interface the tracker to the computer via RS232 comport the
<Satpc32 rotor control program cannot get elevation and azimuth values
<from the tracker.
<Likewise, when I use a USB to RS232 convertor, my computer finds the
<device, installs a driver, but the control program cannot get values.
<I have setup the rotor in SATPC32 to the correct com port and do not get
<the error message when the com port is not properly set.
