Connection Rotator Satnogs

Hello
My ground station is # 810, I am currently working with an omnidirectional antenna and I am working on the installation of the satnogs rotator.

I already built the Satnogs rotator, but I had problems connecting it with shield-Arduino nano - Raspberry pi-3

I am doing the installation of satnogs-rotator-firmware and I stopped in step (.Build the code) I don’t know how to do that “make” and the following connection steps.
Can someone help me to continue the installation?
I appreciate your collaboration!!!

I’m not sure exactly where you are stuck. Have you followed the CNC shield route? wiki link

I’m still missing steps and performing a test I get the following error

My Raspberry has had an unexpected shutdown, it doesn’t work, I think I’ll install the last image again :frowning_face:

Hello Patrick

I am performing the rotor connection tests using https://gitlab.com/librespacefoundation/satnogs/satnogs-rotator-firmware#testing-with-hamlib-rotctl-or-with-serial-monitor
The step motors are energized but do not move. Just feel a pulse in them, as if they were trying to move but they don’t, this when using P 10 10 like test

Thanks!!!

Unfortunately I do not have any experience with the controller hardware yet, so all my hints will be guesses. Maybe @azisi could chime in here…
