[amsat-bb] Light duty az-el rotators

I'm going to start using the Arrow dual-band antenna with my FT-736.  I've ordered the EA4DX rotor control.  Isn't there a combination of inexpensive tv rotators which I can use?  I remember using a "pass-thru" rotator set when I was DA1BB; two rotators, one for azimuth and one for elevation.  Seems to me I bought them locally.  Balanced the horizontal mast with a weight at one end.  That set up was with a Fritzel 2-m and 70-cm helical set.  The channel master rotors I've seen have a flat base.  Looks like Overkill.  Any ideas?
