[TowerTalk] 1 control box on more than 1 rotor

I'm not sure that I see the advantage to this, unless both towers are near 
each other and very far from the shack.    If you connect the motors 
together so that both turn at the same time, you will need larger wires and 
you would only be able to use the indicator from one rotator so the 
direction of the second would be out of sync.  You could install relays 
outside that would switch between the rotators and use a common cable and 
controller, but then you would need to run extra wires for the relays.

I am going to stick a couple more towers in the air and  wondering if anyone
has tried or done  the below .
 i would like to operate 2 or more rotors with one control  box. They will 
be TX2 style rotors. I just would like to save some on running  all the 
cable to each tower .
  It is just a idea....

Thanks Randy
