W9KE Satellite Tracker

"A small handheld antenna and a simple radio are all you need to get started….Unfortunately the amateur satellite market is very limited so there is no incentive for anyone to produce a low cost commercial az-el rotor system. The Yaesu G-5500 is currently the only viable option. It is a great piece of gear but is quite expensive and the rotor motors run on AC which makes portable option a bit more difficult."
