Jose and Richard KD4NMI
Some time ago I was contacted by Jose about construction of a satellite tracking system he was interested in constructing. On this page are a just a few of the many photos he has sent of the construction of the antennas and control system. The one thing that struck me interesting was the mounting of the two U-100 rotators. I never thought of that and it looks quite good.
The difference here is Jose is using Orbitron for his tracking and my program was made for Nova. Since the Nova version is floating around out there, I decided to make a second slightly different program for the DDE data from Orbitron. Seems to work well at my QTH but I haven't had the time to play with Orbitron that much due to real work and other commitments.
