Re: Rotors

I have three of the Rotor-EZ units in my Ham series rotors and they work
very well. I also have the EA4TX ARS (http://www.ea4tx.com/) in a control
box that I plan to use with my Ham series rotor on a 3 meter C/Ku dish. The
ARS system uses any potentiometer position indicator for the software to
drive heavy duty relays. Just hook your rotor system to the terminals and
away you go.

I have the second 3 1/2" pipe to mount using the original pipe as the
vertical suppport. Need to put a reducer on the bottom to fit into the Ham
rotor. Any thoughts on whether a thrust bearing will be necessary on the top
support? I don't have the hole cut for the top bracket yet as I am still
pondering ways to make a smooth cut about 3 5/8" in diamter.

Would there be any interest in my project, slow as it might be to
accomplish? I could put some digital photos on a web page if there were.
