HASH(0x9b4da354) out of 5 stars Using in medium duty amateur radio setup. Good performer so far. 13 Feb. 2014
By D. Wofford - Published on

It's been just over three years now since I purchased this rotor. I am using it to turn a stack of three ham radio antennas (5 element 6 meter yagi, 10 element 2 meter yagi, 11 element 432mhz yagi) with a dual band omni antenna topping out the stack at the top of the mast. I was a little concerned that I was asking too much from a lightweight TV rotor, but after three years, it's still working just as well as it did the day I installed it. It hasn't frozen, jammed or worn out (yet). If it broke down tomorrow, I'd feel like I got my money's worth out of it.

I don't know if it made a difference, but because I used a rather long (10 feet) antenna mast above the rotor, I felt it necessary to mount the rotor about four feet below the top of the main pushup mast, resulting in the first four feet of the antenna mast being in a more stable parallel arrangement with the main mast. The rest of the antenna mast extends six feet above the top of the main pushup mast. I did this using the TB-105 Support Bearing also sold by Amazon. This certainly has made for a more stable support system and may have resulted in less flexing and strain on the rotor as well, thereby prolonging its life.

I just hope that by writing this glowing review, I haven't jinxed myself.

HASH(0x9b911ac8) out of 5 stars Looking good so far 19 Oct. 2011

The rotator arrived from Toolfetch across the country in 4 days. The unit appears to be nice quality and heavy duty. I was surprised to find the control box was so heavy at 3.5 pounds. I've been using it for several days and it moves smoothly with repeatedly accurate aiming. It's my first rotator so I can't compare but I would expect years of reliable service. See my added pics.

Update: The rotator is now nearly 3 years old and still operating just fine with exposure to the Arizona sun, wind and rain.

This is a nice heavy duty antenna rotor that so far is working very well for me.The control box is different from the one pictured,but is a lot better.It turns antenna 360 degrees in either direction.I hope it lasts a long time.I got mine from Black River Distributing and it came two days after I ordered it through Amazon via UPS service.I'm happy with it.Get yourself one!

HASH(0x9bad3600) out of 5 stars I like it but... 4 April 2014

I've had it for a few months now... Seems well built. Took it down this morning because it was jammed, and wouldn't run. I got it unjammed, and figured something out... If this thing :"over runs" it will jam. The north aim is very important because of this.
The only way that the outside unit can turn itself off is with the switch from control box inside. So, if the control box, and the rotator are not BOTH set north before installation, there is no switch inside the rotator to turn it off if it over turns. IT WILL JAM!
When it does, you will need to take it down, and while turning the control in the opposite direction from the jam, tap the rotator unit until it un-jams, and begins to rotate... Then do the alignment.
We will see if there are more problems with this, but for right now... It seems to be working again.

HASH(0x9ae66b64) out of 5 stars 3 in 2 years 17 Mar. 2012
By Bob in WI - Published on
This item is sold & branded by RCA, Radio Shack Antennacraft & others. The rotor is the same, the controller varies. The rotor is the most unsatisfactory product I have bought in years. First one lasted 2 years of light use & then froze. Took it apart to try to repair but the gears were frozen together & I chipped a tooth trying to free them up. Second unit turned about 10 degrees & froze, tried it with another controller; still nothing. I tested the 3rd one in the garage before screwing around on the roof. Several full rotations ok, I mounted it with the antenna & its frozen after 48 hours. This one is going back too & I'm going to try the style with the slanted housing. Maybe that is better. This is trash. Unfortunately, I don't think there are many antenna rotor factories left in the world so there are not alot of alternatives.
