Preset your rotor control to North, either 0 or 360. Mount rotor on the 
tower, mast etc. It makes no difference where the rotor is physically 
pointing. Mount antenna onto rotor and position it pointing north. The only 
thing to worry about is the drip loop position of your feedline. It should 
not bind as you rotate from north to south.

It's harder to describe than it is to do...

Subject: [amsat-bb] Stupid. Question

Hi to the list,
Please apologize if for someone i am making a stupid question.
I am going to change my broken G-5400B rotator with a new G-5500 one.
Before i mount it on the mast i am going to set it to the North.
On the old one, on the Control Box there was 0 degreese and 360 degreese on 
the same point, in the middle of the analo display while on the new one i 
have the 0 degreese on the left side of the analig display at the beginner 
of the analog display while the 360 degreese is on the right side of the 
analog display.
The stupid question is:
How do i have to set the Azimuth rotator?
On the 0 degreese on the left side of the analog display or on the 360 
degreese on the right side of the analog display?
Any help will be really appreciated.
