Steve -

I replaced my T2X rotators (actually they replaced themselves by failing)
with Yaesu G-1000DXA and G-2800DXA rotators.  I'm using Green Heron RT-21D
controllers with both.

The G-1000DXA rotates a 4-el SteppIR at 100ft and the G-2800DXA rotates a
2-El 40M beam, the Force 12 Magnum 240N, at 120ft.

Absolutely no problems with either rotator ever since I installed them about
8 years ago.

I am considering an antenna change and I would like to consider beefing up
my rotator from the present T2X.

I would be interested in comments on using a Yaesu 2800 vs T2X.  While I
have not finalized on the antenna, I am considering a 4 el SteppIR and I
think the T2X is marginal.

Also, I would appreciate info on Alpha Spid and Prositel rotators with
respect to using in my Rohn 45 tower(s).  Is the mounting of either/both
rotators different than T2X.  And, if you recommend either Alpha Spid or
Prosistel, which model?

Any other comments are welcome unless they relate to my sanity.
