G-2800DXA Extra Heavy Duty Rotor

Our newest top-of-the-line rotator is for extra-heavy-duty antenna installations. It includes “Auto Slow Start” and “Auto Slow Stop” features to avoid sharp jolts to the antenna array and tower. The G-2800DXA includes a rugged mast clamp and 40 meters of control cable, for easy installation. Total rotation range: 450°, with presets.

  • Compass Display
    Stop may be set at North or South.
  • Preset Control
    For hands-free rotation during busy operating sessions.
  • Variable Speed
    50 - 120 seconds for 360º rotation.
  • Planetary Gear System
    For improved braking and precision when using large arrays.

Yaesu rotators are housed in weatherproof melamine coated die-cast aluminum and permanently lubricated to insure maintenance-free operation under all climate conditions. Yaesu Vertex includes a mounting template with their antenna rotors.

Tower Shock Absorber Joint (G-2800DXA)

The GA-3000 is a tremendous aid in prolonging the life of your tower and rotator when turning very large arrays. It's heavy-duty rubber bumpers eliminate the metal-to-metal fatigue that, over time, can damage tower installation, and it conveniently mounts between the rotator and the tower's rotor shelf. Mounting hardware is included.
