at ED1R we use EA4TX' rotor interfaces. The Rotor interfaces are connected
via USB to a Raspberry Pi. I wrote a web Application which lets us
conveniently turn the antennas through the web browser from any operator
position. The Application is also able to hook into a Wintest network.
Source code with a screenshot and installation instructions can be found
EA4TX' ARS speaks the Yaesu rotator protocol. So any other Yaesu rotator
should work out of the box. However if you can program a little bit, it
will be easy for you to adopt the code to any other rotator protocol.
