Re: Yaesu 5400B Rotor Capabilities



Hi John, WB9PNU

If you live in a windy area than four M2 2M9SSB antennas on "H" frame
will probably destroy the pinion and the tube gear of the elevation rotator.

This was several time my experience with 4 Cuchcraft A144 20T in the
windy gulf of Napoli.

In a separed email and for your evaluation I have sent to you a pic of  this
array wich was desmantled for the above mentioned reason.
