    Hello Ned,
    While not completely sure, I think I saw a note somewhere that the turner will be powered by coax from PG.
    Looks as a neat solution

    TBD, but I wouldn't be surprised if it's 12V DC like pretty much every other accessory, including nearly every auto tuner ever made.

          Thanks for replies.  I strongly suspect 12 Volts D.C., just not certain.  Probably fed via
    coax when the control-over-coax feature is added.  I'm planning on placing it at the antenna
    soon after testing, which would mean that I'd have to add a 12v. supply that I can shelter from the
    elements.  I have 115V A.C. at the antenna.  I also wonder about the weather proofing of
    the unit itself.  It has been said that it was designed with at-the-antenna placement in mind.
    But, weather proofing can be tricky.
          I guess my anticipation anxiety is bubbling up a bit.

    @Ned. Most of the Genius lines use nominal 12v DC and along the way an injector was mention/shown to extend for remote locations. All of this may be subject to 4o3a's final revision and I'd not get too worried about planning it until we're shown a close to production prototype. All best and 73 Steve K9ZW
