• Yaesu G-550 Rotator for satellite communication

The Yaesu G-550 satellite elevation rotator shares the quality points of their azimuth rotators cousins but provides 180 degrees of horizon rotation on the horizon. Whether you are adding an elevation to an existing azimuthal network or starting from scratch with a combined azimuth / elevation unit, these rotators can facilitate satellite or EME communications.

To add elevation capability to an existing azimuth rotation system, use the G-550 elevation rotator. With a 180 ° rotation (from horizon to horizon), the G-550 features an elegant controller with a large, easy-to-read display.

If you have an existing azimuth rotator, but want to try EME satellite or low-impact operation, add the G-550 to your existing mast. A pole made of metal or fiberglass can then be installed through the rotator, for mounting antennas to rotate in elevation.
