 To All
I bought one about a month ago(Green Heron control box) and its just short of 
amazing. I have it on
a Yaesu 2800 and interfaced with ProLog2K and it is smooth. Green Heron is 
going to be at Dayton
this and you will enjoy talking to Jeff. 

I highly recommend It

I know there is interest out her for a "GOOD" rotor.  Some stil like to buildit 
themselves.  After
years I finally got a prop pitch up and going, my HyGain Model 400 ROTOBRAKE 
was getting a bit

Curious to what antenna(s) you are rotating?  Some have rather large antennas 
to turn so a benchmark
as to what it can handle would be nice.  Maybe it could handle 52ft boom 5el 
20M yagi that weighs in
at 170lbs plus a 2el 40M Cushcraft?  And that is not as big as many.

I remember a HamRadio write up years ago by a VE using worm gear also.

Idea of GREEN HERON control box sounds interesting.  I am beginning to look at 
one now (got some
nice 28VDC 18A regulated supplies for prop pitch use, that became available 
after I got the M2
control box.)  This for prop pitch.

Put me on your interest list.
