Hi, Steve --
Are you saying that you're currently using a T2X in 25G? I didn't
think it would work. Did you cut some tower diagonals to get it to fit?
I'd have to check with the manufacturers to find out about the Orion and
Yaesu 2800's fitting in 25G. Anybody out in TowerTalk-land have any more

The Orion, being made in the US, has the CDE/Hy-Gain/ bolt pattern. The
JA rotators are slightly different. The current Rohn Accessory Shelves have
slots on them so they will accept either one. The JA rotator manufacturers
also have adapter plates available if you have the non-slotted hardware.
