I am trying to use the antenna tracker firmware to point at a known GPS location without “connecting” to a mavlink vehicle. There is a companion computer on the antenna tracker platform that is acquiring the lat,lon,and altitude through a separate radio. I noticed in the source that I can send GLOBAL_LOCATION_INT messages to the antenna tracker for it to point, but I want to see if anyone has done this.
I am creating a mavink message with dronekit that sends GLOBAL_LOCATION_INT, and it moves the orange heading to waypoint line in mission planner, but I wanted to know if that’s all I needed to do. The tracker doesn’t seem to always respond to this.
