G-5500 Azimuth-Elevation Rotator Combination Unit
Yaesu G-5500 Azimuth/Elevation Combination for Space Communication.

Note: Cable is not included with the rotator, as the length must be determined case-by-case. Contact your Yaesu dealer to obtain the length of cable your installation requires. For runs of over 100 feet, use #18 AWG instead of #20 AWG.

The Yaesu G-5500 provide azimuth and elevation control of medium and large-size unidirectional satellite antenna arrays under remote control from the station operating position.

The rotators may be mounted together on a mast, or independently with the azimuth rotator inside a tower and the
elevation rotator on the mast.

If you're just starting out in satellite operation, the G-5500 provides a complete Azimuth (450º)-Elevation (180º) rotation system that's ideal for most all Amateur applications; the dual controller lets you keep track of all aspects of the antenna system's positioning.

The G-5500 also includes an interface jack for computer control, supported by An External Control jack (DIN connector)  provided on the rear of the controller for interfacing via D-to-A converters to an external microcomputer or other display/controller, like the optional GS-232A Computer Controlled as well as many aftermarket control programs and interfaces.
