I have the Remote Rig setup running fine from California to Arizona.

I now want to add the control of my Hygain Ham M/2/3/4 rotator(s) and StepIR Vertical remotely also.

What Microbit equipment do I need to purchase to allow me to run both the Hygain rotor and StepIR Vertical equipment remotely?

Thanks for your help.

Hi

A webswitch 1216H + Rotator interface 1216L can be used for the Rotator ( you get 5 relays also to control other eq).
The RC-1216H can be used to control SDA100 and SteppIR antennas, We have not tested with the vertical but as far as I know it's the same protocol for the Verticals as for the Yagis. Maybe somebody else have tested with a vertical  and can answer that question.

Thanks for the info Mike.  I will get the equipment and then ask for any help I need to get it all running.  I'm not a real computer person and had a good friend help me with getting the regular Remoterig running.

I've just got back from 2 weeks in Hawaii and took the Control box and TS-480 control head with me.  I ran the radio in Arizona just fine from there and had a lot of fantastic QSOs on all bands.  So I am very happy with the system and hope I can get the rotator and StepIR running also.
Best 73 and thanks again for the information.
