I've been using InstantTrack and the Orbit360 rotors with the digital pot mod to the controllers as published by Anthony Monteiro, AA2TX, very successfully for sat tracking. I've also been using SatPC32 for radio control equally successfully. This has required maintaining two pc's and trying to sync TLE's etc. I'd really like to marry the two and use SatPC32 with the Orbit360 rotors, but danged if I can figure out how. Surely it's possible. Can anyone help? Thanks. de Roger W7TZ

This site contains plans for a control box designed to interface with the Orbit 360 rotors and SatPC32:

Wow, I'm amazed no one has done any creative programming to accomplish what I'm attempting. Yes, the hardware (Orbit360 rotors) are old, but they're still very functional and I'm sure there's plenty of them in use. I did manage to get InstantTrack to work with my radio, so guess I'll stick with that application to chase the birds. It works. Thanks to all for the interest and the comment.
