I am trying to build my own ground station.
Before start building hardware staff, I would like to test gpredict and how communication works.
I setup an ubuntu pc, with gpredict and hamlib.
I create virtual ports using the following command:
socat -d -d pty,rawer,echo=0 pty,rawer,echo=0
which creates the ports /dev/pts/1 and /dev/pts/2
next I give the command:
sudo rotctld -m 202 -r /dev/pts/1 -s 9600 -T 192.168.79.12 -t 4533 -C timeout=5000 -C retry=0 -vvvvvvvv
and seems that something is waiting for and after that I go to gpredict, and track satellite using the antenna rotator. but I cannot see any message in the terminal.
I sure that I setup something wrong, but can anyone give me a hint?
Thanks in advance.
