[TowerTalk] PST61 Rotor Reliability?

    Living in Ireland, I have suffered some damage from water ingress over
the years.    The design has been improved but I might suggest you wrap
joints with self amalgamating tape to further improve water ingress.    

     I have used these rotators for nearly ten years now to rotate a 4
element SteppIR with trombone and never suffered any mechanical problem
other than water ingress.    If you are worried you could use the PST-71,
which is a real beast.

      The positioning pot is available for replacement from Array Solutions
if it ever gives trouble.   A plate beneath the rotator allows easy access
to do this.

       Good luck.

I'm considering one of these with the Green Heron FT21 controller & 500ohm
pot conversion for my next project.  Looks like a good price for just the
rotor compared to others.  But I can't seem to find anyone over this way who
can give feedback on their reliability?
