John is right, but I'm way too lazy to get up early on Saturday for the 
garage sales.  

I have been collecting the parts to get my AO-10 antenna on a rotor lately 
(still on a tripod on my patio).  I recently bought a brand new, still in the 
box with warranty CM-9510 az rotor (very similar to the Radio Shack model)   
on ebay.com for $38 + $8 shipping (no tax) and a refurbished U-100 elevation 
rotor on amazon.com (auctions) for $24 + $8 shipping.  There are many more 
sites on the I-net that have tons of ham stuff.  One of my favorite is 
qth.com.   Let your fingers (and mouse) do the walking....
