You failed to tell us what rotors you are using. That's a small antenna so you could use stepper motors. Ask Dr Google. ---  
 Ciao baby, catch you on the flip side.    


Time flies like an arrow, fruit flies like a banana.

 Subject: [amsat-bb] Rotator options
Hi all,I have an arrow antenna mounted to two rotators that are manually controlled.  However, as much as i though this would work well, it has not.  Im wondering what options are out there for rotators that can be controlled via a tracking program?  It seems the most common is the yeasu az el. However Iwas wondering if there is any less expensive options, that could be modified etc.
Ive looked at the WRAPS etc im looking for a good all weather setup.
