Yes Tim it should be ok Johns Korner is on the same rotator as long as there's room for the rotator to fit between the elements (boom has to go through the rotator tunnel) then it should be ok.
We did contemplate using a standoff cradle but that meant the rotator had to lift the aerial (heavy) so may have broke the rotator.

Tim, that rotator would rotate a bus if you were to stick one on the mast.

Tim. Is that a 15.11 ? Where did you get it ? I see that Antennenland say that they no longer ship outside of Germany.

yup 15.11, a wonderful kind friend was clearing out their garage,

Thanks John, I'll see what the sidelobes are like on a bus ;-)

i'm excited by the nulling possibilities as much as the gain, as you'll see from my bandscans i have a real problem.
most of my best dx is in the tiny 87.5-87.9 window these days, it would be nice to get some more clear freqs
