          M2 Antenna Systems, inc. builds one of the best rotator systems. The greatly improved OR2800PX with precision worm gear drive keeps the unit from being reversed by torque (no break needed). The OR2800PX uses a magnetically actuated pulse circuit for accurate heading and target accuracy. The OR2800PX boasts a prop-pitch style torque plate, heat-treated machined steel gear train and a hardened and heat-treated 6-splined output shaft. A large 2,000 lb thrust bearing handles high mast loads with low friction and the massive ductile iron mast clamps finish the assembly. Two styles of the top Drive Plate are availalbe based upon your mast size. The 6 X 6 Round Drive Plate handles mast sizes up to 2 1/8". The larger 6 X 8 Oval Drive Plate handles mast sizes up to 3 1/8".

  1. Tough and Reliable

    Posted by Kam on 21st Sep 2016

    I have had this rotor installed at my Costa Rica QTH for 8 years. It rotates a 17 element HF array at the top of an 80ft tower. This is an extremely high wind area, and I bucked conventional wisdom and pinned the antenna mast to the rotor mast clamps because the wind is too strong and frequent to rely on simple clamping pressure to hold it in place. Based on my experience with other rotors, I don't think there are many of them that would have lasted through the type of stress that this QTH and that installation put it through (including being one of the most humid and rainy areas on earth). It is finally showing the stress and I am in the process of replacing it with the same type rotor. My only comment is that when using Mode 2 (programmed preset directions), it would be great if the rotor ramped down when approaching the desired heading - maybe there is a way to do that with manual presets, but I have not figured it out yet.
