Very Cool Vosworx AZ-EL Satellite Tracker

When I was in the Dominican Republic working the RS satellites, MIR and the Space Shuttle, I didn't have an elevation rotator.  I could only move the antenna in the azimuth plane.  So I just aimed it about 45 degrees above the horizon, spun it around, and hoped for the best.  I also had no computer control of the azimuth heading -- I'd just watch the location of the satellite on my computer screen and operate the rotator control manually.  

This device is a big improvement. 


  1. OK, another project on my lengthening list of things to build! Need a 3D printer!
