Re-Calibrating the Rotator
This antenna rotator comes from the factory calibrated
and ready to set up. However, if you notice that the
control unit’s display and the drive unit’s position do
not match (for example, if the display reads 30 but the
antenna has done a complete 360-degree rotation), you
can recalibrate the rotator to make them match again.
1. Press the INITIAL button to return the drive unit to
its starting position—the line on the rotator section of
the drive unit should line up with the line on the base
once this is finished.
2. Press the INITIAL button a second time to
completely reset the control and drive units.
3. Press and hold the INITIAL and > buttons on the
control unit’s front panel—make sure you press the
INITIAL button slightly before the > button. Keep
holding these buttons down as the display starts
counting up in seconds.
If the display starts counting down from 36, the
control unit is in initialization mode, not calibration
mode. Let the rotator finish initialization, then try
step 2 again, this time pressing the > button more
quickly after the INITIAL button.
4. Watch the antenna and drive unit—when it completes
a full 360-degree turn, release the INITIAL and >
buttons on the control unit. This typically takes about
The DEGREE X10 indicator displays the rotator
cycle time. The control unit uses this information to
keep the antenna positions and program locations
