I spent a lot of time this afternoon trying both Meridian Pass scripts… one I got communicating with Gpredict, and successfully controlling the motor… but it would randomly do unexpected things as I was testing it manually.
I managed to get this compiled, communicating with gpredict, and controlling the motors… but I couldn’t get it to behave in a predictable way… maybe I don’t understand, I thought this just allows the crossing of the meridian line instead of a full rotation from 0-360… it would do some very random things as I was sending it manual commands from gpredict… as I increased the azimuth at a certain point it would stop that direction and spin around the opposite direction. It seemed to have a mind o…
this one I couldn’t get to communicate with Gpredict or control the motors at all
The "MERIDIAN FLIP" Fix for arduino software - repositioning rotator
NOAA 18 HRPT pass this afternoon. 39degree pass.
recent GOES 16 image. the rotator parks on GOES 16 when it’s not tracking.
