I have a M2 Orion and yes it is realy a rf nois generator.This one is used
for the multiplier antenna.But I got another problem.He still loose
the correct heading.I'f I calibrate it it is in the correct heading but a
few turns and some he is 25 -40 or 60 degrees of.
Sould that be because there is a long run of cable probely arond 80m but I
use heavy wire (1.5mm to the tower and around 18m  0.75mm to the rotor), or
sould it be because I change the head off thereedrelay.
The rotor was sitting almost for a year in my home ,and when before
installing i got a error.This whas coming because the reed relay whas
closed always to the high magnetism.I moved the reedrelay house i little up
and it turned ok.Everething whas ok on the bench !

any help ?

> My second M2 Orion 2800 generates quite a bit of RF noise as it turns. It
is an older unit. I understand there is some filtering in the newer units.
I'd like to resolve this before this weekend. Has anybody dealt with this
problem? What do you suggest? I am thinking about installing an EMI line
filter on the DC drive lines just outside the rotor.
