I built the WRAPS rotor and used it on field day.  I was totally happy with its performance.  I can break down everything including the antennas and tripod and store it in a 4 foot gun case.

The latest AMSAT Bulletin Vol. 38 No. 3 was great.
Quite a number of interesting articles. I found the CNCTRK article by
KI4SBL particularly interesting. The modular, metal construction seems like
a really good idea. Bob is very good on returning emails so let him know if
you have any questions about his interesting system.

In addition to CNCTRK there are a number of other portable rotors that have
been around for a while (satnnogs,  WRAPS and
http://www.mobypicture.com/user/MeltdownCore/view/18165109 to name a few).
Has anyone built and used any of these relatively new lightweight portable
rotors. If you have any first hand experience with one or know of any
others please let me know direct and/or on the board.

tnx & 73 W9KE Tom Doyle
