Yes, it's testing out OK. Just fitted Winegard control panel to facing inner panel and tested out all the existing coax throughout the bus so I know what goes where. Oddly, the old flying saucer is giving somewhat good service today (digital box found a couple channels) but must have a bad connex inside as it has been totally useless in past.

Thanks, Bruce. It tested out good. Replaced a small amp glass tube fuse going to the original antenna motor control and it started receiving again - somewhat, anyway - and the internal adjustment is no good either. It will be replaced, all is done down below to complete the job apart from putting the new unit on the "elevator", for which I need to get a 19" square piece of steel cut to adapt it to the "elevator" and make a few more coax connections. Will be nice to be able to receive TV reliably without a cable hookup. The digital OTA is not bad...

Removed the old flying saucer yesterday (full of water!!) and made a triangular adapter from aluminum bar stock to hold the new Winegard Rayzar to the original base plate on the "elevator". Keeps the weight and thus the strain down on that motor, was considering a sheet of diamondplate or similar but couldn't find any that wasn't heavy/steel! Tips for those considering this, remove the extension feet from the Rayzar and just open those holes up a little.

Little by little, pal! Hope to have it on the roof and working tomorrow. Got a bunch of other projects lined up for the week apart from everything else I need to do...

I just took the new Rayzor apart, removed the feet, and drilled some holes from the inside to mount it to the original plate on the mast.
