I've used the Yaesu G-1000DXA and G-2800DXA on 100ft and 120ft towers for 20 
years and have never had their mounting brackets fail.  I also now use the 
Green Heron controllers.  I would suspect that the failure reports you heard 
were because the rotators were installed improperly.

Subject: [TowerTalk] Broken Alpha Spid

It appears that my Alpha Spid cut loose in some heave wind recently.  I 
am looking to upgrade to something else.  I am turning a 4 ele SteppIR 
with the 30/40 loop and a 2 ele Cushcraft 40.

The Yaesu 2800 and Orion 2800 have been suggested.  I heard that you 
have to be careful with the Yaesu and the mounting bracket as you can 
break it.  I have a Green Heron Controller.

It has also been suggested to get the NV or LXC mounting brackets for 
the Orion.

Any other thoughts?
