Some reviews on eHam.com note noise issues with the AlphaSpid
controller. Here are some quotes:
NOISY - on 50MHz and on 144MHz !!
Control box: yes, generates noise on HF (signal sometimes 9), but not on
Controller is making noise on HF. That`s the problem of IC`s driving
display and the display. Maybe producer will build new one with LCD
display? Noise will disappear, lower power consumption, cost is the
same. Now I have to switch off the controller every time I'm rotating
So... for controller I can give 1
Others don't mention any issues at all. The rotor itself sounds great,
but does anybody have any experiences with the AlphaSpid controller?
