G-550 Medium-Duty Antenna Elevation Rotator
Yaesu G-550 Medium-Duty Antenna Elevation Rotator for Space/Satellite Communication.

For adding Elevation capability to an existing Azimuth rotation system, use the G-550 Elevation Rotator. 
Providing 180 of rotation (horizon to horizon), the G-550 includes a handsome controller with a large, easy-to-read display meter.  

The G-550 is designed to accommodate small- and medium-size antenna arrays. The maximum safe load depends on the physical size of the antenna, method and quality of mechanical installation, and maximum wind velocity at the installation site.

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-550 provides 180 elevation control of unidirectional satellite antenna arrays under remote control from the station operating position.

The factory-lubricated rotator unit is housed in weatherproof melamine resin coated die-cast aluminum, to provide maintenance-free operation under all climatic conditions.
