Hi all on TT,


I had an unpleasant visit from sparky this past weekend.  My 80 foot
tower took a hit.  The Internet wireless fried.  My two antennas seem to
be fine.


However, my Rotator seems hit.   Have any of you experienced lightning
damage to the M2 2800DC ?   I have made the checks per manual and
everything below seems to be according to specs.  (the control box and
all the shack was completely disconnected during the storm).  The
readings for the 4 control wires are according to specs so I would think
this would mean the cables are all ok?  I can only suspect the rotator
itself took a hit?  Any ideas appreciated.


Gary, N5PHT
