The RTC-200 is a compact interface to connect compatible Yaesu rotors to a computer. You can use all Yaesu rotors with 6-pin MiniDIN 'Ext. Control' connector, a suitable cable is included. The RTC-200 offers connections to two rotors at the same time, to support satellite antenna systems with azimuth and elevation motors. Towards the computer the interface is connected by USB, a cable is included.


The RTC-200 interface uses the Yaesu rotor control protocol, just like the GS-232A/GS-232B interface by Yaesu. This makes this interface compatible to nearly all rotor control programs on the market. The interface requires a supply voltage of 8 to 15 V DC, a cable is included.


For installation a driver must be downloaded from the manufacturers website. This download also includes a small rotor control application (Windows only).

List of supported Yaesu Rotors

  • G-800DXA

  • G-1000DXA

  • G-2800DXA

  • G-5500

  • all other models with an 'Ext. Control' socket


What if my rotor does not have the 'Ext., Control' socket?
On the Ext. Control socket of a Yaesu rotor (except G-5500) there are simply the signals of the three buttons 'left rotation', 'right rotation' and (if available) 'brake release', as well as the analog signal 'direction' and of course 'ground'. Such a socket could be retrofitted relatively easily to other rotors, even to those of another manufacturers.
