THERE IS NOTHING IN THE DESCRIPTION THAT INDICATES IT HAS AN AMPLIFIER. IF IT DOES, IT WOULD BE IN THE INDOOR CONTROL BOX.

Is there a Limit to the lenght of the antenna

Answers
answer 1
There is not a limit to the length of the antenna. However, there is a limit to the 'wind load' of the antenna as well as total weight of the antenna and mast above the rotor. Too much wind load and the rotor gears will strip out. Too much weight and the motor could burn out.

answer 2
IT WOULD BE BEST TO KEEP THE POLE FROM THE ANTENNA TO THE ROTOR SHORT. THE POLE THAT THE ROTOR BASE ATTACHES TO SHOULD BE A LARGER DIAMETER, & AS LONG AS TO NOT HAVE THE ATENNA INTERFERE WITH ANY OBSTACLES WHILE ROTATING IN BOTH DIRECTIONS.

answer 3
Do you mean length of the cable controlling the rotor? it depends on the gage of the cable conductors that operate the rotor motor. You should be good up to 100'

about 30' is good with guide wires.

This rotator cannot be computer controlled unless you have the knowledge and ability to build your own computer interface unit and write the control software.
I can be done, but it is expensive to do so.

It requires 3-conductor rotator wire. The coaxial cable connects to the antenna - not the rotator.

THE COAX CABLE IT ATTACHED TO THE ANTENNA, & NOT THE ROTOR. YOU CAN USE ANY CABLE TO THE ANTENNA, INCLUDING THE ONE YOU ALREADY HAVE. THE CABLE THAT ATTACHES THE MOTOR TO THE CONTROL BOX SHOULD BE INCLUDED.
