I have plans for improvements, I am already improving the rotator for next version, I added bluetooth connection too.

I will also need Nvidia help with more powerful Jetson so I can make full autonomy, if Nvidia could kindly support this

Setting up today with L band antennas

My ol’ Jetson TK1 will be running as a server for SDR and Rotator. The receiver is a Jetson Nano with touchscreen.
