FYI (below). Anyone try the Azimuth/Elevation Rotator Controller?
How were the results? How compare to the LVB controller?
Cheers, Pat N8PK

Arduino for Ham Radio
Please join us for a special webcast featuring our special guest, Glen Popiel, KW5GP, author of the newly released ARRL publication, Arduino for Ham Radio<https://www.arrl.org/shop/Arduino-for-Ham-Radio/>. This event will be webcast from W5KUB’s personal ham shack on Thursday, October 30th at 8:00 PM CT (0100 UTC). Arduino devices are powerful and inexpensive microcontrollers, and they are an easy way for ham radio operators, students, and professionals to create devices that interact with their environment using sensors and actuators. Glen will discuss Arduino and its many applications. Glen will show and demonstrate projects from his book. He may even bring some surprise projects not in the book. Glen’s projects include:
Random Code Practice Generator
Talking GPS/UTC Time/Grid Square Indicator
CW Beacon and Foxhunt Keyer
Fan Speed Controller
PS/2 CW Keyboard
Field Day Satellite Tracker
RF Probe with LED Bar Graph
Azimuth/Elevation Rotator Controller
Solar Battery Charger Monitor
Talking SWR Meter
CDE/Hy-Gain Rotator Controllers
To join the webcast go to http://W5KUB.com where the fun begins! For the first time, there will be a telephone line for viewers to join the webcast. Viewers can ask questions or discuss their own Arduino projects. During the live webcast, viewers can chat with us or other ham radio operators from around the world.
Viewers can win prizes, including autographed Arduino for Ham Radio books and some Arduino items donated by Glen Popiel. To be eligible for prizes, you must have a registered chat room login account on W5KUB.COM<http://w5kub.com/>. If you don’t already have a login, go to “W5KUB” and click on “Live Events and Chat Room” where you can either log in or set up a new user account. This year over $10,000 in prizes have been awarded to viewers of our webcast! Of course, no purchase is necessary to win a prize because we don’t sell anything!! W5KUB is not affiliated with any products or companies.
Following Arduino, our guest will be John Amodeo, NN6JA, Producer of ABC’s hit TV show Last Man Standing featuring Tim Allen. John will provide an update of the recent K6H Special Event.
