Hi Sion,

Look at the images at:

there is one picture with the terminal box open on the rotor. Also, the
rotors are now available with a high resolution option (0.1 degree). If you
get a new one, might as well do that. We are planning on doing the same for
a station here in Winnipeg. Also, compare prices for the rotor. Even with
shipping and taxes the above mentioned source is still far less expensive
then anyone in NA.

Hope that helps,

Stefan VE4NSA
