Can anyone suggest a low-cost, decent antenna rotator? I just want to use it to turn a yagi hooked to a scanner.
I just ordered one of those myself.. good price...Airdorn said:
Good question. I am sure it is just standard wire. I went ahead and got 100ft of it for $10.99...Looks like standard 3 conductor wire.Airdorn said:Is it special wire, or can't I just use some typical 4-conductor stranded wire for it?
I thought they quit making those antenna rotators, I remember having on the TV when I first moved down to Louisiana. And that was over 40 years ago. By the way, I had the opportunity to go to Frys there in Fort Worth, several years ago and was blown away at allandrewccm said:For the record, I was over at Frys yesterday and saw several of these CM rotors available.
I just bought a rotor for my Grove Scanner Beam here:andrewccm said:I am interested as well.. Plan on placing a Yagi in my attic
Mine just arrived.. Wow.. Much more heavy duty than I expected. My wire and Yagi have not arrived yet, so I haven't had a chance to test it. However, my plans have changed a little bit. I thought I was going to have to mount the rotator on a mast or tripod (in attic). But the darn thing is pretty heavy...I think I probably could get away with much less in the way of mounting. It might even just sit on the attic floor without need for a semi-permanent mount.delta_p said:Does anyone know if this CM 9521A rotator will take attic temperatures ok without failing? Thinking about using one in my attic. My attic gets like nuclear hot in summer
