Yaesu rotator re orientation



Hi,

I read this morning an e-mail regarding mechanically reversing a
azimuth rotator to reduce end stop annoyances.

For those interested

Uni_Trac  can software configure ANY Yaesu/Kenpro G5400, G5600, and the
G5500 azimuth rotator to a number of different physical orientations.

Choose a format.

Move the azimuth rotator electrically to the center of its travel.
Mechanically rotate the azimuth rotator body (antennas) to the center
cardinal point (bearing) described in the format below.

Uni_trac will now track within the confines shown in the formats below

Option 0                 G5400 G5600  (North Center) Standard G5400 G5600
                                S, SW, W, NW, N, NE, E, SE, S

Option 1                 G5400 G5600 (South Center)
                                N, NE, E, SE, S, SW, W, NW, N

Option 2                 G5500 (SouthWest Center) Standard G5500
                                N, NE, E, SE, S, SW, W, NW, N, NE, E

Option 3                 G5500 (North Center)
                                SE, S, SW, W, NW, N, NE, E, SE, S, SW

Option 4                 G5500 (NorthWest Center)
                                E, SE, S, SW, W, NW, N, NE, E, SE, S

Option 5                 G5500 (South Center)
                                NW, N, NE, E, SE, S, SW, W, NW, N, NE

Option 6                 Standard G5500 installation but limited to 360
degrees rotation.

Choose an option that limits the number of  antenna flipping  requirements
at your location.
