Today I fired up the eme system to see if it is still working. Tomorrow PJ4X (Bonaire) will be active on the moon and I want to work them for a new dxcc. When I tested the system there was suprise. 9N7WL was there with a good signal. Thats a new dxcc for me on 144Mhz.

If I am not using Dx4win I like to have a dx cluster running which knows what dxcc countries I need. To import the adif file direct from Dx4win to Rxcluster does not work. I first export it from Dx4win to N1MM logger and then export it from N1mm and import in Rxcluster.

Today I modified the read out from the Prosistel rotator witch moves the eme system from potentiometer read out to pulse read out. The older Prosistel rotators who are in the other towers have the motor straight up and had a fan witch I removed and on the shaft I made a magnet. At the cover I had connected a pulse reader.
On the newer Prosistels this is not possible anymore because they don’t have a fan. I now mounted a motor unit of an old actuator parallel to the motor of the Prosistel. I now can use the pulse read out of this actuator to read the pulses. I had to reprogram the Green Heron rotor box from potentiometer read out to pulse.
This is easily done by changing two jumpers in the box.
