I acquired an Alliance tenna-rotor model c-225, rotor head and I need  a control unit for it.
Does anyone know where I can find one that works with this unit.
I did a web search but could not find anything, so suggestions greatly appreciated.
Thanks
Carl

If this motor has 4 control wire connections almost any 4 wire Alliance box will work.

Agree almost any Alliance 4-wire controller should work.  Don, W1CIA has one for sale for $20.  See the last listing on this page:

Thanks for the response and suggestion.
However my Model C-225 has 5 wires for connecting to the controller.
I also understand the the C-255 controller allows moving the antenna to any position ,compared to the U-100 which move the in 9  (?) degree steps.
As a result I don't believe the U-100 controller will work on my C-225.
If anyone knows how to make them work together , please advise.
Thanks again

I'd call Craig, N8DJB. Go to his site, Rotordoc.com. He may have the answer right there. If not, give him a call and tell him what the situation is.

The U-100 controller absolutely will not work with the C-225.

Thanks Doug:
I did contact Craig, N8DJB and he did have  the C-225 controller and ordered it, he sent it and now the setup is working fine.
Craig gave great service and a fast response.
Again Doug , that for the lead.
