[amsat-bb] Yaesu G-5500 question

For what it's worth, I've been using a (prior to me owning it) well
used G5400 for the past year with end mounted M2 Leo-Pack yagis.....
with no problems at all.

My rotator is low enough that "mid mounting" the array (on a
fiberglass boom) is not possible, and counterweighting would likely
involve a large weight due to the lack of moment arm length available
off the back of the array.

If/when it fails, I'll be sure to report my findings to this group.
