Greetings Gary,
Thanks for the tip regarding a locknut on the Azimuth bolt, where it protruded through the base of the Lightbridge. This addition securely locks the Az pulley without inducing excessive drag into my modified Az bearing system. Prior to the addition of the locknut I was experiencing some rotation of the pulley.

Have sussed out a new observing site not far from Broken Hill that is a major improvement over the one my group had been using. When Kev gets this current rush of work related travel out of the way we will set up together and get his Argo operational.

Thanks again for your most excellent service and assistance with helping me sort out the setup of my Argo to communicate with "The Sky".

Best Regards
Trevor
