Antenna Rotor ?


DTVUSA Jr. Member
Looking for advice on an antenna rotor. What to buy?
Also I would like the ability to move in small increments 1-2 degrees. Left or right.
My antenna is very directional and just a small movement makes a difference.
From what i have read about the channel master is it moves in 10 degree increments. Is this true?

New "modern" antenna rotors ALL have plastic gears and are prone to failure. However, there is a source for new (old stock) Alliance rotors that have metal gears which rarely fail, here:

If I recall correctly, Alliance rotors 'automatically step' at about 5 degrees per 'click' on its control box knob, but you can stop its rotation manually. The current Channel Master programmable rotor can be set in 1 degree increments, however, some versions are prone to failure and parts for foreign-made rotors are virtually unavailable.
