N7TR and I both just purchased two of these.  I will be using mine with
Alpha Spids.  The boxes are very nicely built.  Rich has his hooked up and
loves them.

 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 tired.

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.
