Some installed MonstIR's are using Orion/M^2 2800's.  Alfa Spid and
ProSysTel make big rotators that would work, but they only fit
inside fairly large towers (no crankups).  Not even clear they
could fit R45.  Since I already have a 2800, I am probably going
to go with that for my upcoming MonstIR installation.  Alfa is
going to test their big rotator for mounting on top of the tower with
the antenna right above the rotator.  Results should be announced
in a month or two.
