low cost, reliable, rotor system  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
The Channel Maser 9251A antenna system offers digital display, remote control, and a reliable light duty rotor for very low cost. It is reasobably prompt in swinging 360 degrees, and offers a very small footprint control unit with big, bright LED display. Place it accross the room if you are running short of desktop space. The remote control works great. For a great 3wire system, give this offering some consideration.

For those with existing rotors in service, the 9537 upgrades you to the digital readout controller, and the remote control for $49.95. You can get rid of your old style "twist and guess" control, and get a nice digital display and remote for a great price.

The Channel Master rotor head can be made to mount on a standard (US Tower) rotor platform. This takes a little work, but simply involves removing two of the motor mount screws, and using longer 1/4-20 bolts to come through the bottom of the rotor head. The rotor access plate will need modification to do this. Cut or grind out pass through holes. Alignment of the rotor will take a little care to make sure adequate clearance is provided for crank up sections.

My rotor head is now three years old and going strong. The upgrade 9537 package has been installed for two months. Wow! What an improvement over the old controller.

Really nice to have a quality low cost rotor system available. Also great to have an upgrade pathway for older systems at a fair price.
