Hello all....I have secured an MT3000 "chassis" from the estate of an
SK. It was placed in a garage for several years after the guy's death
and I just recently got it. It is definitely a "fixer upper".
The motor and gearbox are locked up and most probably no good. M2 does
have a replacement unit that can be purchased.
The controller is ancient and also useless, as far as I am concerned.
However, a Green Heron will fix that.
I don't think that the reflector will allow me to post pictures, so here
is a Dropbox link that should do the job.
If that does not work, please let me know and I will try again.
IF you are interested in taking this on as a project, I estimate that
you can end up with a working MT3000 EL rotor for about half of the M2
price. An MT3000 will elevate all but the very largest EME arrays(and
maybe even those), so getting one so getting one for about half price is
