The Yaesu G-5500 is ideal for satellite communication antennas as well as for many other amateur radio applications. The G-5500 rotator has an interface port for computer control and a full azimuth-elevation rotation system with a 180 degree elevation rotation range and a rotor rotation range of 450 degrees Azimuth.
The dual controller allows you to keep track of all aspects of the antenna system positioning. The control unit is an elegant style desk unit with two counters and steering controls for azimuth, in the direction of the compass and degrees; and elevation, from 0 ° to 180 °.
The Yaesu G-5500 rotator provides azimuth and elevation control of medium and large unidirectional antenna arrays under remote control from the operating position of the radio communication station.
The rotators can be mounted together on a mast, or independently with the azimuth rotor inside a tower and the elevation rotator on the mast.
The two factory-lubricated rotary units are housed in an aluminum-resistant melamine die-cast resin for maintenance-free operation under all weather conditions.
