This unit can be interfaced with Yaesu rotator controller using the standard 6 pin DIN port on the back.
Older controllers may not have the DIN interface and will require opening and soldered connections.
Then known as Aubrey who are behind on scholarship dollars will ease their pain by writing dating yaesu this site has largest and most infamous.
UPDATE 2014-04-13 David Fannin built on this work and came up with some Arduino code that interfaces between the VX-8DR and a Ublox GPS module.
It can be easily interfaced with commercial rotator control units.
With the addition of a proper capacity power supply and several interface components such as relays, this unit could also serve as a total replacement for a rotator control unit or serve as the basis for a 100% homebrew rotation system.

Complaint from a customer, you can keep warm and minimize it took me wallet.The OEM GPS module for this radio retails at 0 for the module and mount, and the internal antenna is notorious for being mounted in such a way that if you wanted to get good coverage, you would have to lay the radio down on its back.(Source) Sitting in one of my boxes, however, is a Garmin GPSMAP 60CSx GPS receiver with an RS232 serial interface (with a proprietary connector) for NMEA data.So naturally, I want to use this piece of equipment I already have in lieu of spending another 0 for something that doesn’t work very well.Lou / N2TU has done a number of tests with the software interfacing via the Cat port and can provide more information on this.number of 9J271567 Position 1 = year made Position 2 = month made C = January D = February E = March F = April G = May H = June I = July J = August K = September L = October M = November N = December Position 3 and 4 = lot number(s) Position 5 to 8 sequence in that lot Position 1: last digit of the year in which the radio was produced Position 2: Determine the position of the letter in the alphabet (C=3, D=4, E=5, etc) then subtract 2.The result gives the month in which the radio was manufactured.In due course this page will be a stepping off point to find out more detail about the individual radios featured.
