    I have for sale a CDE Ham 2 rotor and control box. Both of these units have been in storage for the last 10 years. When I acquired this system, I hooked it up and found that the rotor turned as it should, but the meter did not indicate that the rotor was turning. After a few checks, I discovered that the position potentiometer inside the rotor was open, so I purchased a new one from Norm's Rotor Service ($48 including shipping) and installed it this past week. The meter now displays properly and tracks the rotor's position as it should. While I had the rotor apart, I did not notice any missing gear teeth or any other problems inside the rotor.

    The system is in good (certainly not mint) condition considering its age. It comes with all U-bolts, nuts, washers and clamp bracket for the antenna mast, as well as the 4 screws for attaching the rotor to a rotor plate on a tower. As can be seen from the pictures, some of the screws have some mild surface rust, but this doesn't affect the operation of the system. A previous owner cut off the ground pin from the power plug. I can install a new power plug with ground pin if you request. $200 includes shipping to lower 48; no international sales. I accept PayPal, postal money order, or cashier's check.

    Thanks and 73,
