They make ring rotors   we have one here on a 34 meter high tower it has a
Mosley pro 67 B on it.  We had to make a adapter to mate the antenna to the
mount on the ring rotor (just a good quality pipe to make an offset mount.

The unit has been reasonably reliably .  It is use at "The Edmonton, space
and science center"  VE6SSC.  I think 9in the last 4-5 years the changed
only the reporting potentiometer, maybe the brushes.  It uses a DC motor.
The new ones have a different controller then the one we have.  (I think)
The price has about doubled in the last 5 years.   I think that they are in
the $1200 to $1600  US range but best to check with TIC      

>Hope this is of help.

If you find any others I would like to know about them, I think that these
are now out of the price range.
