In theory, any should work, 3 wire controllers run a motor in the controller, and switches to shut it off when the motor and switch position match. The rotator and controller motors are just in parallel.

Nexxtech = Orbyx = Channel Master?

I was looking at some old posts from 2006 and there was a discussion about the same issue I'm having (see my above post). I bought a Nexxtech antenna rotator motor at VV but it didn't come with the control unit.

It's a 1501245 which I believe Radio Shack and The Source both sold. I just want to make sure if I spend $80 on a new control unit that it's going to work.

Also, I saw a link from 2006 for the manual to this Nexxtech unit. Does someone still have the manual they can give me a link to? The link from 2006 obviously doesn't work anymore.

Be aware that there are rotor controllers advertized quite often on Kijiji, of all vintages, for much less than the cost of a new one. In fact, there are complete rotors (motor and controller) for less than $80 usually.

Units marking is a "Delhi remote programmable antenna rotator 604-RC"

What is the voltage they use and can a remote for it be sourced

Thank you in advance
