While I await the City of Fort Lauderdale's permit decision about my tower,
I have some decisions to make...
I have a CDE HAM-III rotator as well as a Yaesu G-1000DXA. I have
disassembled and reassembled both, they have new bearings and grease and
look good inside.
I'm likely going to put up a SteppIR 3 element with the 30/40M add-on
element, so both rotators are potential candidates given the manufacturer's
One of these is going up the tower - I'll sell the other.
Facts around my installation:
- This tower will be in a "salty" location - 30 feet away from a wide
salt water canal, 2 miles from the Atlantic Ocean.
- I have a rotor plate with the CDE holes already drilled.
- I will order a computer control module for the rotator selected.
- I have adequate control cables for either (both) rotators.
I'm interested in this group's opinion. Which would you put up, and why?
