Not a seperation kit. You'll need the same bracket that goes on top of
the azimuth portion of the rotator. This bolts to the bottom of the U
shaped piece of stamped steel that connects the azimuth and el
portions of the rotator.
GC0-038 is the ##.
Take care to provide enough clearance so that the satellite gear (el
rotator) can rotate vertically as well as clearing the drooping coax
Once it's on the tower up top, getting at this stuff is a problem. I
use a 20' stick of 25g, a rotator plate, top cap, mid tower guy band
and a tilt base. All Rohn. Trouble? Just lean over slow and easy. One

Is this where using the "separation kit" comes into play? I'm having a hard time wrapping my head around the installation parameters.
