Explore Low Earth Orbit with Satellite tracker

This project can be useful if you are trying to point you antenna to Low Earth Orbit (LEO) satellite. Why do it manually if you can leave this job to automatic tracker based on microcontroller. The brain of this tracker is a Paralax basic STAMP II, which decodes satellite coordinates (azimuth and elevation) sent by tracking program. It also controls DC motor based rotators that positions antenna. Continue reading
