CHAPTER 13

Rotator Controller

One of Dennis’s many interests in ham radio is operating “weak signal” VHF and UHF (V/UHF). And, as many V/UHF operators do, he does get involved in contesting. It is fun and when conditions are good, it can be downright exciting! Working a station across the country on 6 meters is an amazing thing when the conditions are good. HF is fun, but VHF, UHF, and microwave can be, for lack of a word, amazing! Working a station 600 miles away on 10 GHz SSB can change your life!

But, this book isn’t about weak signal operating. Still, the project discussed in this chapter can enhance the ease of operating a station with any directional antenna on a rotator, and especially those stations that have multiple directional antennas ...
