Re: Yaesu rotor



I have two of Pablo's interfaces. He is REALLY easy to deal with, very
enthusiastic about helping you get the board setup and working and his
support after the sale (like when you burn up one of the boards - don't ask
how!) providing prompt and courteous service.

I am using the ARS on my TVRO conversion. Plenty of flexibility for ANY
drive motor be it Yaesu, HyGain/MFJ or dish actuator. You won't be sorry.
