ORBITRON TO COMMAND
TYPE AR303 OR
LOW COST IN A PORTABLE FIELD DAY SYSTEM, IDEAL FOR TRACKING METEO OR HAM SATELLITES
Before go to the links, take a first look at this page.
If you have two of these MASTERROTOR or CHANNEL ROTOR system, and add the 3 PCB/s boards described below, you can automatically track LEO satellites using the ORBITRON program with our DRIVER.
