5.0 out of 5 stars Rotate your radio or TV aerial!, 18 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Automatic antenna rotor (Electronics)
I already used an aerial rotor system for my aerial but my indoor control box [that powers the aerial rotor itself and allows the aerial direction to be adjusted] suddenly went faulty. I was unable to locate another control box and the only recourse was to purchase another complete antenna rotor package. Aerial [antenna] rotors are expensive from amateur radio shops. I was recommended Conrad from a friend that has used several and lives in Portugal. I ordered a Conrad system through Amazon and with carriage via UPS it cost about £62. Exactly the same Conrad rotor package from an amateur radio dealer was £99 + carriage!
The Conrad rotor uses 3 wire control cable so 5 amp 3 core mains cable can be used [try Screwfix for the cable] - the rotor works OK at my home with over 70 feet of control cable. Only problem is that the included instruction booklet is in German.
Excellent quality product, delivered within 5 days [Conrad Electronics UK is based at Barking, Essex]. A happy user.

The 3 core cable between the indoor controller and the external rotor can be conventional domestic 5 amp cable. You will see numbers 1,2,3 on both the connection terminals of the controller and and rotor unit itself. All you need to ensure is that what ever colour you connect to each of the controller numbers connects to the same numbered terminals on the rotor. For example if you use brown for number 1 [controller] the the brown at the other end is connected to number 1 of the rotor; say blue is connected to no.2 [controller] then the other end blue connects to no.2 in the rotor etc.
The rotor works well but I found the controller is perhaps a little noisy. I hope that sorts out your query...good luck!
