Wind stow recovery and 0-360 Az tracking

Modifications from Ed Himwich to 12m Field System software have been made to fix issues with the antenna recovering from a wind stow. Testing was successful and changes have been propagated by Ed to all three sites.

Also tests on the Hobart 12m were made to check if the antenna behaves when tracking through Az=0. Field system was given a source command that put it at a small positive Az (sky and actual coordinates) and then observed as coordinates went through and past Az=360. No problems noticed and this was also tested with 1 deg offsets in Az and El in case there were problems when an offset was implemented.
