Folks! I need not whole motors, but just a "brains", I mean electronics. Perhaps somebody has motor which is mechanically broken and ready to trow it away.

OpenBox X5 on a 1 meter motorized dish.
And now a 10 foot "C" band dish.

Deep in the Boonies in the central Sierra Nevada mountains of California.
I have one, (SG2100) but I'm stateside, it may be too costly to ship over the big pond.

Thanks, Terryl!
What if you take out only electronic plate and send it to East coast (VA)? Of course I cover mail costs.

What motor are you working on???

As the electronics are not interchangeable.

And I'm on the West coast US.

I need diseqc electronics to use on Jaeger 1224 (quiet big beast) to make it USALS ready. Maybe in the future also one of Ajak motors need to be USALS equipped.
I see your avartar, that's why I was asking to send not across the pond but just across 4 time zones, that should not cost a fortune. And from East coast I will get parcel free of charge.

Get a "V" or "G" box interface for the linear motor, it goes inline with yor receiver and will run the linear motor on that dish just fine.

Something like this one.

No no, that is not about positioner. I know very well what positioner is, I have at least 7 (maybe even more) of them.
Diseqc motor works in USALS mode, when you put your Lat/Lon in the receiver, find one satellite and all other satellites will be found automatically.
In case of positioner-motor system you should search for each satellite manually and store the position. That takes some time and not sexy. USALS is another level of motorization of antenna.

USALS is just one way to let the receiver know what satellite you want to look at based on your longitude and latitude, it does nothing to motorize the dish or motor.

All it does is send the motor a Diseqc command (computed via software in the receiver) to go this many clicks East or West of the stored longitude and latitude, sensors inside the motor will tell the controller board that is getting close and get ready to shut down.

But if you want to try it, I can send the guts to you, all I have to do is take it apart, click on my name and I think we can do a private message to exchange shipping info and shipping charges.
