Re: linear positioners

Do a search for linear positioners on eBay in the Consumer Electronics
section.  There's a guy that has a satellite shop web page.  Actually I
think it is called www.satelliteshop.net.  Anyhow, he sells these.  Two
models on the website.  One for about $40 and the other for about $70.
Difference is probably for the size of the dish.
