I have a m2 2800 on my 70' Rohn 45, with a 20 foot molly mast. It has a 2 
ele 40 on top of the mast and a TH7 at the top of the tower.

It's never missed a lick.

I use #16 for the motor and cat 3 phone line for the reed switch. I'll be 
switching to the packaged (2ea #12 or 14 and one shielded pair for the reed 
switch) rotor cable this summer.

I am hopefully about to change out rotors on 2 of the towers here. Does 
anyone have input or experience with the M2 2800 rotor or the Pro sistel 
PT61D antenna positioners? Right now I am using a Yaesu G1000DXA which 
really isn’t cutting it and an Alpha Spid which is better but still not 
quite enough. On one tower I will be turning a long boom 6 meter 8 element 
beam along with 2 16 element long boom beams. The other tower has a Telrex 6 
element 20 meter monoband beam on a 46 foot boom and a Hygain 5 element 15 
meter beam the 155ba I forget the boom length. I have 2 thrust bearings on 
each tower so vertical load isn’t a problem. Thank you for your help.
