Hi to the group.

For those in colder climates; the repair/rebuild/maintenance of these AZ/EL
units is an opportunity to put in low temperature grease.

Our experience here is that the EL unit is okay "as is" from the factory but
the AZ unit isn't going to rotate at -30C or lower.  There is no tower work
done here in the winter so this is definitely as summer project.

This morning it was -35C
