I'm hoping someone out there might have experience with this question and 
could provide some help.  I am replacing the rotator in my U.S. Tower TMM433EHD 
crank-up tower (specially ordered with capacity for 15 sq ft of antennas at 70 
mph).  The previous rotator, a Yaesu G1000DXA, was trashed in a recent 
windstorm.  I will have a 4 element M Squared 20 M. yagi, 2 element short-boom 
homebrew 30 M yagi, and the shortened Force 12 40 M yagi:  totalling around 
12.4 sq 
ft.  I would like to use the Orion 2800P rotator, but I'm not sure if it will 
fit in the tower.  Anyone with any experience in this?  Any suggestions for 
another rotator, like the CATS RD-1800, Yaesu G2800DXA, or the Hy-Gain 
tailtwister or HDR300, that would fit on the rotor shelf?  I'm pretty sure the 
Alfa-spid and "Big Boy" rotators won't fit.

Thanks for any help!
