New YAESU G – 1000 DXC ROTATOR Rotator for the SA MM Net
08 August 2016 | Cape Town
The Hygain rotator on my mast that drives a 3 element yagi stripped its ring gear after a violent NW storm hit Simonstown in early July. The rotator served me well for 5 years and I was surprised it lasted as long as it did.
A "wanted to buy request" was put onto the SA Radio League website and a few days later a good Samaritan came along and offered to donate a new Yaesu 1000DXC rotator.
On behalf of the SA Maritime Net and all yachtsmen and women, a big thank you and a round of applause to Klaus Knopf - ZS1QO - of Comlab, for his generosity.
The new rotator will be operational in time for the 2016 / 2017 sailing season enabling me to work both the Indian and Atlantic oceans."
