Boy, there sure is a lot of bitchy hams around these days.
Why not buy a good quality rotor in the beginning?  It will
be with you for a long time, provide trouble free service
and you can upgrade your antenna in the future.  There you
have three good reasons.

Also, why do the majority of the hams on here make recommendations for
rotors that are overkill for the antennas to be turned and very costly?
Not everyone that reads this reflector has two or more towers with
muli-stacked arrays.  I really don't think that you need a $1000 rotor
to rotate a 3 element SteppIR!

Many people are recommending the Alfa Spid, which is $1000 Canadian
or $700 US.  You will pay as much or more for a Ham IV with computer
interface.  The Alfa Spid has many advantages over the Ham IV that
have nothing to do with turning capacity.
