Allan is using the AlfaSpid in a side mount configuration. The antenna being turned is a ? element ?? meter beam on a ?? foot boom. The antenna is mounted on a ?? inch sidearm. The AlfaSpid has programmable rotation limits which can be set to keep the boom of a side mounted antenna from colliding with the tower.
With space at the operating position at a premium, the small size of the AlfaSpid controller makes it a welcome addition. The large bright LED position readout is easy to see, without taking up a lot of precious room. Multiple AlfaSpid controllers will fit into the footprint of any other competing rotator controller.
Some other antennas at Allan's station include, a 3 element 80 meter beam at 150', and a 5 element 17 meter beam on a side mount.
This stack features 4 elements on 40 meter, 4 over 4 on 20 meters, and 5 over 5 on 10 meters.
