Re: mounting a u-110 elevation rotator

Hi Carl,

I found it easiest to mount the U110 rotor right on my Az rotor.  See:

I had to drill out the U-bolt holes on the Az rotor side-ways a little, as 
the pattern on the U-110 isn't exactly square. The U110 shaft doesn't sit 
exactly over the centerline of the mast, but it's close enough that the 
major balance issues come from the antennas themselves.
