I’m developing a new open source wifi-controlled satellite antenna rotator with a simple android app, when I stumbled upon the satnog controller and found some similarities.
I was hoping you could get me some feedback and perhaps we can find a way for it to also work with the satnog network?
The actual satellite tracking happens in my android app, and the onboard rotator controller gets azimuth and elevation degrees over wifi (http query) and handles the rest.
Since the machine uses stepper motors, it can do with simple limit switches to keep track of its position. Also the housing is somewhat rainproof but if I sell enough of them I might produce a much more durable design made for prolonged outdoor use.
You can 3D-print most parts yourself and just buy the electronics, but I will also offer complete kits for less than 200USD. These will be available hopefully in february.
Any feedback? / SM7YSA Daniel
