The Yaesu G-5500
provide azimuth and elevation control of medium and large-size unidirectional satellite antenna arrays under remote control from the station operating position.
The rotators may be mounted together on a mast, or independently with the azimuth rotator inside a tower and the elevation rotator on the mast.
If you're just starting out in satellite operation, the G-5500 provides a complete Azimuth (450º)-Elevation (180º) rotation system that's ideal for most all Amateur applications; the dual controller lets you keep track of all aspects of the antenna system's positioning.
The G-5500 also includes an interface jack for computer control, supported by An External Control jack (DIN connector) provided on the rear of the controller for interfacing via D-to-A converters to an external microcomputer or other display/controller, like the optional GS-232A Computer Controlled as well as many aftermarket control programs and interfaces.
