Hi,
Has anyone tried to configure and control a rotor like the Yaesu G-800DXA through the USB interface USB232B (exemple : https://www.ebay.com/itm/USB-232B-Rotator-Control-Interface-Board-for-YAESU-G-800DXA-1000DXA-2800DXA-Bt/174127070455?hash=item288ac83cf7:g:V90AAOSw97pd9y9F)
Any success, or similar control with other devices, please share you experience how it perform.
Also, any possibility then to have WSJT-X running on the RigPi, and be able ton control the rotor attached to the USB port and configured on RigPi Rotor menu?
Thanks.

Open a terminal window, 'sudo su -', 'rotctld -m 603 -r /dev/ttyUSB0'

This will start the rotor control daemon for a Yaesu (603) on USB zero.

Use the gpredict program after using the rotctld command.

Hi Georges, 
I think I have the same interface (CG Antenna RTC 200)  My Yaesu G1000 works very well. 
Try below settings:

Man Yaesu 
Baud 9600
GS-232B
