Hey all.  I am a new ham, and I am about to purchase a rotor that will initially handle only a Cushcraft A6270-13S multiband.  Not too much of a load.  However, planning ahead I would like to find one that can also handle a medium triband when I can afford it.

Looking for recommendations and rotor brands that can be computer-controlled.

http://www.idiompress.com/rotor-ez.html will control several rotator models, and is highly recommended.

M2's Orion is probably overkill for your application; http://www.m2inc.com/products/rotors/or28002.html .

AlfaSpid and Prosistel are relative newcomers with good reputations.

Yaesu rotator controllers appear to have been developed by analog engineers just learning digital design. Unless you have a logic analyzer and enjoy puzzles, stay away.
