See my article in JAN/FEB 2007 AMSAT Journal on the "Hot Rod ARROW".  It uses only one cheap $60 rotor for azimuth and its fixed in elevation, no rotor for elevation.  

As long as you meet link path budget requiremnts of the antennas / system and your radio, this antenna works for AO7, AO51, VO52, SO50 & ISS.

The rotor is availabe from Warren electronics for $60 and comes complete with a hand held remote.  Its is NOT computer interfaceable, and I find no need to do that with the Hot Rod Arrow design.
