Rick I'm using 2 AlfaSpid's one in a Rohm 25 and one in a UST 89 foot
crank up. They fit nicely in both.

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.
