RemoteQTH server supports only the controll arduino opensource rotator interface/controller by [K3NG|http://blog.radioartisan.com/yaesu-rotator-computer-serial-interface/] (Asembly [Manual|http://remoteqth.com/data/rotor_controller_02.pdf]).

!What you need
* USB/UART converter
* Arduino rotator contoller

Rotators page setting '''up to 8''' Arduino rotators controller connect to server via USB/UART interface.
{.redka#id color: #f23f37;}'''Every interface must have a different serial number, to uniquely identify the server!'''{/}
{.redka#id color: #f23f37;}After set this form you can repluged your usb device or reboot server, for detection new USB rotator interface.{/} 
!Configure Rotators
You can enable up to '''eight''' rotators, or disable.
* '''Name:''' for rotator can have maximum 25 characters (not required). If set name as '''n/a''', this rotator is not shown in control section.
* '''USB Vendor id:''' must have at 4 characters.
* '''USB Product id:'''must have at 4 characters.
* '''USB sn:''' must have at least 1 characters, and maximum 20 characters.
* '''From Azimuth:''' must be number 0-450
* '''To Azimuth:'''  must be number 0-450
* '''Custom GET command:''' available command send to rotator for get azimuth
**default for K3NG arduino control 'C\r'
* '''Custom SET command:''' available command send to rotator for set azimuth
**default for K3NG arduino control 'C\rM#\r'
** Command format
*** '''\n''' [Carriage return|http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carriage_return]
*** '''\r''' [Newline|http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Newline]
*** '''#''' entered azimut number


For finding id's and serial numbers USB device you can use a pop-up window [http://remoteqth.com/img/split.png] on top of page. This window print dmesg message from kernel of system, After plug usb device you see

Every rotator also listen to an unique IP port: Rot1-8 is responsible port 91-98.

* '''Your locator:''' locator format must be six characters in format ''XX##XX''
** ''XX'' The first pair (a field) encodes with the letters "A" to "R".
** ''##'' The second pair (square) encodes with the digits "0" to "9".
** ''XX'' The third pair (subsquare) encodes with the letters "A" to "X".
Your Locator you can find here [1|http://f6fvy.free.fr/qthLocator/fullScreen.php], [2|http://no.nonsense.ee/qthmap/], [3|http://tk5ep.free.fr/googlemap/carto.php]
New map can be generated for longer than ten seconds. Wait, eventually refresh this page.
