Will Smart SDR Beta 1.10.8  work with a Hygain DU-1  Ham IV rotor using a USB to serial cable? I presently have it working with HRD. 
Also how do you make the rotor turn on the Maestro ?

Hi Bill

No, as the HyGain wants beam direction information and that is not present in SSDR.  You want to use something like HRD, N1MM, PSTRotatorAZ and a few others to turn your rotator.

There are no plans to be able to drive your Beam from the Maestro to the best of my knowledge. 

Most, if not all, the USB work provided by Flex has to do  with Band Data management.  

I hope that helps ... many 73
