[Productivity] Hamradio stuff

Skill name: trackinghamradio-skill

User story:

For people with a diploma of radio-amateurism, a specific direction, I thought that it was possible to adapt this project already achievable with Alexa, but with Mycroft

What third party services, data sets or platforms will the Skill interact with? Are there similar Mycroft Skills already?

Mycroft will most certainly have to work with a second device (Raspberry?) To take care of the “reception” part of the tracking and rotation orders of the engines (which will certainly be in 12 or 110 / 230V).

What will the user Speak to trigger the Skill?
“Mycroft turns the antenna at 190 degrees”, “Mycroft turns the antenna towards the ISS”, “Mycroft turns the antenna in zero position”

What phrases will Mycroft Speak?
“The antenna is towards the ISS” or “The antenna is turned 190 degrees”

What Skill Settings Will this Skill need to store?
Nothing

Other comments?

It may also be interesting to be able to follow the directions of certain satellites (or the ISS), and if the satellite is in the field of view Mycroft will confirm the continuation and will run engines.
Once the target satellite “disappears”, Mycroft will voice it and return the antenna to 0 (0 degrees in both axes).

Hi @RoxGoryx, we have a template for Skill Suggestions, could I please get you to fill this out using the template - it makes it a lot easier to then plan for development.

Kind regards,
Kathy
