Now I get to mess with "Audiovox" to go through all the expense of sending dead weight in for warranty on another piece of junk.

So if it took say 360 seconds to make a complete turn, the control unit assumes that the rotator has turned 180 degrees, if it has been turning for 180 seconds.

Followed all installation instructions for set up and how much mast should be used for the antenna on the rotation end and it still failed.

After all the north eastern storms had passed, I finally had a chance to get on the roof and install the rotator. I was replacing an old radio shack rotator that lasted 15 years. After the installation, I plugged it in and fliped the power switch and nothing happened. After confirming I had power to my receptical, I took the cover off the control box. One wire was not soldered to the power switch, so I got out my soldering iron and made the connection. The control box works fine now, but the remote control doesn't work. As long as I can turn the antenna from the main control box that is good enough. I wouldn't recommend this brand.

Seen the reviews were not to bad so i bought it. If you notice the Phillips brand recieved very bad reviews but the item looks exactly the same. Both are made in China. I ordered the first one (RCA)and it came quickly, and set up easily. You will be told to do a 360 degree test before installing antenna to make sure it goes around.. This should have been my clue about reliability. I did the test and it worked. Put it up on the mast, installed the antenna and then took it to 360 degrees again. Thats where it stayed. The motor would not bring the rotator back. I took it off the roof and tested it without an antenna. Still stuck, no sound, nothing. I ended up having to send it back (KEEP THE BOX).. The good news is that amazon returns had me another one within one day and they were awesome do deal with. I asked for a replacement.
When I got the new one and opened the box, i ended up opening the trap door where the wiring connects to the rotator. The first thing i noticed is one of the wires broke off that comes from the motor. It needed to be resoldered on. What kind of quality is that. I did the 360 degree test and made sure it went around once. Thats where dejavu came in. It locked in place and wouldnt go the other way. I could hear the motor humming but it would not move. I had to look up online the RCA customer service (which is audiovox in NY). The representitive actually asked me how I knew it wasnt turning. After i explained to him it doesnt go the other way and is stuck, i was told that it doesnt sound like that is supposed to happen. Basically they were useless. I ended up taking the motor out and pulling everything apart. It appears the motor is mounted a little off so the gears are not matching correctly.

I have bought two of these units in the past 14 months. The first unit worked fine for just at 13 months, then locked up. The rotator unit went to 00 after I hit the "INIT" button - and never moved again. Just outside the warranty - naturally.

I only used the device during the first few weeks to set the best signal strength, after that - I did not touch it again for many months. The only reason I used the rotator again after about 6 months was to adjust it after I had replaced the coax lead in wires. I got the unit set up - great signals etc. When I went to store the new setting - I hit "INIT" instead of "MEMORY". This is THE largest failure - poorest design with the unit. The INIT causes the antenna to go to 00 - while the base goes to 36 and count down - trying to send the rotor to 00 the whole time. If the INIT button is allowed to be used - why does it lock the unit at 00 never to move again? The rotator now just hums when you send it signals. That button ought to have a lock on it so as to confirm you really want to "INIT".

I bought the second unit once the first unit locked up, I installed it yesterday - was tuning it this afternoon - and again - hit the #^$*#@ "INIT" button by accident - and now this NEW unit is locked up. It lasted all of ONE day.

Made in china - what quality.... Do NOT buy this unit unless you need a new paper weight. RCA is not what it used to be and there are no Made in America products to do this anymore.

Now I get to mess with "Audiovox" to go through all the expense of sending dead weight in for warranty on another piece of junk. Thank goodness for USPS if it fits it ships....

Nothing wrong with Amazon nor the company that shipped it - the unit is just junk.

I was really excited to find out that a local big box store carried this RCA rotor item.
The electronic box looked like it was well built, like an old scanner and was quite beefy with remote.
As usual the reviews were about 50/50.
50% that it was the second coming and 50% that it came froze and wouldn't rotate right out of the box.
Well unfortunately I was the latter 50%!
My setup took over 2.5 hours to install the 3 wire cable. (they don't tell you but if it's a short run don't waste your money use phone cable)
It did the 360 deg. rotating test. (this is not told to do until after the antenna is connected! but in the istructions it says it should be done prior!)
Anyways it did its thing and I was on my way to over the air freedom. (I WAS STOKED)
The rotor itself I WOULD NOT trust in an outdoor installation.
So I installed it in my nice cozy spacious garage attic where I figured it would nice and safe for the upcoming winter. (no weathering)
WRONG! The piece of crap was grinding slowly from the start and didn't last through more than say 3 cycles!!!
NOTE: I was only using a small bowtie antenna and light mast pipe about 3' long.
How on Earth was this piece of junk suppose to handle 70 MPH winds and a large beam antenna??? When it couldn't handle my modest and well done setup?
* I actually feel fortunate that I WASN'T one of the poor dudes who went big and had the same result *
I am going to get screwed on the cable but I LEARNED my lesson.
NEVER AGAIN.
FOR 90 BUCKS, I'M SORRY IT'S A WEAK-WEAK PRODUCT! NOT TO MENTION MY TIME THAT WAS WASTED!
