Hi John, G4DMF
In my opinion the orientation of the physical rotator over the mast is
very important because the rotator has limit switches.
If you just clamp mast so that the antennas are north pointing but the
rotator do not actuate limit switches when the antennas are looking
South than the adjustement will be incorrect.
