We recommend: Buy a rotator always one size larger than actually needed! Moreover, rotators and antenns are specified for a setup to a height of 18 meters above ground level. Over 18 meters, an additional load of 1 kgf / m (= 0.1 N / m) is to be added.
azimuth rotor is suitable for small antenna systems. The rotor comes with a control unit equipped with L/R switching.

At great length of control cable voltage drop will occur and the motor becomes less powerful or will not start up at all. The gauge of the 7 wire cable to connect the control unit to the rotator depends upon the distance between the rotator and control unit. The longer the distance, the larger the diameter of the wire required.
To prevent interference in the control / display, control cable of rotors with preset / speed control circuitry from acting together with coaxial cable you should separate control cable at a distance of 20 cm when transmitting power is over 500 W.
