Re: mounting a u-110 elevation rotator



Carl,

     I have done it with a steel plate, and also with a "T" shapped piece of 
pipe.  I can probably find pictures if you need them.  The plate was 
probably easiest and best.

Cut the tab off the rotor that limits how far the mounting pipe can go in.

Drill 4 holes in the steel plate that line up with the 4 bolts extending 
from the bottom of the rotor.

Drill 4 more holes in the plate to line up with two muffler clamps.

Use the muffler clamps to attach the rotor to the vertical pipe/mast.

Don't let it bother you the rotor is a couple of inches off center.

73,
Joe
