DIY Motorized Antenna Mount

I have recently finished building (DIY) and installing a motorized antenna mount for two-way radio, using a geared stepper motor with a stepper motor driver (I have made a detailed post about stepper controllers in my other blog). This motorized mount allows me to raise and lower my antenna with the touch of a button. The mount’s motor is waterproof and has enough torque to carry heavier loads such as 5/8 wave antennas. It can also be modified to become an antenna rotator, or add another motor to build a two-axis satellite tracker, perhaps for a future project.
