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
