I have used both of these rotors during my radio career.

I switched to the Yaesu G1000-DXA  for several reasons, the most important to 
me were the large illuminated compass dial, the 90 degree overlap, the variable 
rotor speed pot, and the position preset with ramp up/down speed at the rotor.

I have turned a HyGain TH-5DXX, a Mosley Pro-67B, and currently a HyGain 
TH-11DXX & Cushcraft 5 element 6 meter yagi stack.

The only failure I had on these rotors has been the compass dial lamp and one 
rubber drive belt which drives the pointer. This was an early failure (within a 
couple months) and the replacement has been working for over ten years.

Hi gang,
I am writing for a friend who is not Internet enabled.

He has been a Ham IV user since it's introduction. As a moicrowaver, his 
towers see a good load. He keeps a spare rotor to swap out when one in service 
fails, which is often.

He is now considering replacing these (as they fail again) with Yaesu 

You opinions between these two rotors (only these please) is greatly
