    Antenna Rotors for beam antenna!

    I can't remember reading very many post on antenna rotors and thought it might be nice to get a education, and suggestions on what is available, who makes them, what features to look for, which ones to stay away from, and which ones most people use. I might someday venture down the road of a beam so who better to ask than the professional junkees. Do they make one that not only turns east to west but also tilts up and down. Don't beat me up too bad ( LOL ) I only installed one for a TV once in my life so I haven't checked them out before. Thanks in advance! PS if I do a beam it will be like the OLD Moonraker unless there is something better out there!

    Thanks that makes a lot of sense because it would need to be more heavy duty than a tv antenna rotor.
