The best solution I have found while using 3 Orion -2800 rotators is to cut 
the connector off the end coming out of the rotator and use wire nuts to 
connect to the cable into the radio room.  My longest run of cable to one of the 
Orion rotors is 400 feet.  Pig tail connectors on rotators are a high failure 
item.  The wire nut approach has also been used on my Tail Twister rotator for 
over 20 years and I have never had a failure due to using the wire nuts. FYI and 
it has worked very well for me.
