I am seriously considering installing the UrbanBeam 40m-6m Yagi Antenna. I live in a HOA area and I believe I could hide this antenna successfully. It only requires a 15-foot turning radius. I will be able to raise it about 35 ft. above ground level, but I live on a high hill and can see for many miles in all directions.
The Urbanbeam comes with the SDA 100 Controller and I was considering upgrading to the SDA 2000 OptimizIR Controller. Is this an over kill???
All control cables will need to be about 125ft long.
I plan using my existing Yaesu Model G-800DXT rotor which is now turning a magnetic loop basically used for diversity.
I expect to build a fold over mast and should be able to repair the antenna easily if I turn the antenna horizontal to the ground before lowering for maintenance.
I would greatly appreciate all comments as to what additions and unsuspected parts may be required to interface this to both my Flex-6700 and Rotor.
