HEY --`nuther neato use for the ubiquitous 4 conductor trailer hitch
connectors .. I (with others) use them on all my mobile rig connections, and
any radio I intend to move around... I parallel the 2 adjacent conductors,
worky worky, even w/ 100 Watt HF rig, though not necessarily recommended ..
but, does the job FB! Great idea there on the antenna rotator wire
hook-em-ups, swapping the 2wo sexes, so cannot hose-em-up! CHEAP .. and
available EVERYWHERE! Unlike the ARRL suggested Cinch-Jones type plugs ..
try to find one of those in Podunk Hollow! As another aside, the local
club(s) used the ARRL Cinch-Jones (read .. Radio Shack) 4 pin connectors
for the "standard", so that all rigs could be safely plugged into the
emergency power source... and, a short while later, that was CHANGED ..
wonder how many hammers have it "right" now? The cheapo 4 wire trailer
plugs, are, IMHO, THE WAY TO GO" !!! Buy bulk, at your local auto parts
store/distributor.... and using to connect your rotator like your suggestion
is a major PLUS ! ~~~73 ... Mark, AA6DX
