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?
