I have a AR-22 rotor and the origanal controller (CDE AR-22R) both 4 wire. What other controler can i use  for it? The clicking noise is to much. There has to be a controller out there that can work.
          Thank You for the help, Brian

I have messed with these rotors.  Probably not. The click is in synch with the rotor motor's rotation, giving you direction indication.  None of the other control boxes will work and give you indication unless you do a rebuild and not sure even that would work.  Others may have another suggesion.   GL 73 de Charles

You could, but I don't know why you'd want to, use a Green Heron Engineering RT-20 controller.  But that's akin to using..say..an IC-7800 with a random wire.

I'd upgrade your rotator.  What are you turning with the AR-22; it's real purpose was to turn small TV antennas and is quite old.

If you're budget restricted, consider a nice reconditioned unit.  I'd suggest Norm at:
