  • Remote Antenna Control

    world
    An excellent choice for remote control of the rotator is using an ARS-USB Unit connected to a Raspberry Pi (Aka RsPi). In this way, you do not need a computer 24 hours on.

    There is plenty of information on the Internet about the Raspberry Pi, therefore, the scope of this section will not go beyond basic operation and wiring of the RsPi.

    Note: RsPi is a minicomputer that runs on Linux.

    Wiring:
    The ARS-USB plugs into one of the USB ports on the RsPi (any of them). Automatically ARS-USB is detected as a serial port, that Linux is known as a tty port. An available serial port will be presented as ttyACM0.
    If there is other serial port present it will be called ttyACM1 (or ttyACM2 and so on).
    Linux, unlike Windows, doesn’t need any driver, and immediately recognizes the ARS-USB as a serial port.

    Mapping:
    Since we want to access the ARS-USB from TCP/IP (either the local network or Internet), we have to install and configure a program that allows us to precisely map a TCP/IP port to this serial port (ttyACMx) where the ARS-USB is connected. This program is called: ser2net and does just what we need.

    Ser2net service installation is simple:

    sudo apt-get install ser2net
