I've been using a Yaesu G-1000SDX for many years - bought it when I was in Alaska. While there, the temperatures hit - 40 F, we recorded 125 mph wind gusts, and had 20 feet of snow over a winter. I love all the features: 450 degree rotation, computer interconnect with an inexpensive interface from IdiomPress, and the preset. Works fine - buy one. ;-)

First, many thanks for the overwhelming response to my query about rotatable
HF antennas. The vast majority of you seem to think the SteppIR yagi is the
greatest thing since the discovery of the ionosphere! I'm looking at it
closely, and it certainly looks like the best possible choice for my
implementation -- except for the cost. I'll be balancing that against how
badly I want it for a little while yet.  Thanks again.

So everything points me to a G-1000DXA rotor. But I'm nevertheless inviting
anyone with actual experience with Yaesu rotors to hit me with your best
shot, and try to convince me that I'm a damn fool if I buy one.  :-)
