Open Source Antenna Tracker - OpenDiyAT

Hello to all,

I used a part of the Ardupilot legacy software plus code from Melih Karakelle and from Dennis Frie and "build" around an Open DIY Antenna Tracker - OpenDiyAT.

It needs only sentences from a gps receiver unit (gprmc and gpgga) and it sends the telemetry to the ground using the audio link of our video transmitter.

It is now in  a very reliable form, and it has still a good development base.

With some work, we can increase the telemetry data to send to the ground base.

I publish the code here: http://code.google.com/p/opendiyantracker/

The project is open and I hope the RC community can embrace this and help to develop the code (what so far didn't happen, which made me sad with the lack of interest).

More to come, tomorrow.
