I have a HyGain T2X that has been in operation for about 30 years.
All I have ever done to it is replace the "motor" control capacitor in the
shack mounted control box. For ten years it turned a HyGain TH-7 with a
Cushcraft A3WS ten feet above it. Haven't had a single problem with it.
For anyone who has an Alpha Spid, I have a question. I went to
their website and looked at their specification chart. I noticed that there
are 3 different Alpha Spid ratings depending on the control voltage. I
didn't notice any different model numbers, so is the control voltage
selectable? If not, what are the differences in the three?

Subject: [TowerTalk] Rotors - your thoughts please.
> I have a 60 foot 25G tower with a TH6DXX and a HAM III as a Rotor. I
actually have two HAM III rotors...one for a spare...but....
> I am looking to do some tower work this spring and summer and wonder the
collective wisdom about getting a different rotor. These rotors are 20 to
25 years old...they have been rebuilt by Norms at least once...and I wonder
if I should go to a different rotor.
> So, what do people like out there? T2X? Yaesu? Stay with what I got?
> I can either have mine rebuilt again or go with a T2X that is used....
> I will be getting a new beam but I am not sure what yet....could be a
SteppIR 3-element, a C4, or an OPTI-Beam.
> So, what do you all think based on your experience....
