  • HRD - Yaesu G-5500 Control

    Just getting back into ham radio after a 15+ year break from it. I was very active on satellites so have a FT-736, TrackBox, G-5500 rotator, Landwehr pre-amps etc. A lot has changed so trying to catch up quickly. I've ordered a CAT interface board for the 736 but it appears I will be needing a Yaesu GS-232A or B box to have HRD control the rotor...is that correct or some other way to do it? Thanks & look forward to getting back on the air again.

    I've just bought exactly this rotor gear to test with. We will support this.

      FYI I downloaded an unregistered version of PST Rotator s/w and have HRD as the tracker & FT-736 control (using FT-841 emulation), using PST Rotator connected to my TrakBox which basically would take the place of needing a GS-232. Preliminary results look very promising.

        I just completed testing of the next release of Ham Radio Deluxe with the Yaesu GS-232B rotor controller and it works well. That release should be publically available on 24-Feb.

            Even with today's release 2/24/19, Rotator program with my Yaesu G-5500 does not work still....no tracking....and yes, the settings are done as per instructions. Also, the Satellite program does not track either and disconnects after a few minutes. I was hoping with all the work done on the software that it was going to be a go.

            SatPC32 will continue to be my preferred satellite tracking program next to Orbitron.
