The VBI-360 is an electronic display that connects to your RS232 serial port or existing rotor control box to show your antenna's directive pattern on a Great Circle map. As you rotate your beam its coverage is clearly indicated by a selectable group of LEDs around the map periphery.

“I use it with my Yaesu rotor and SteppIR beam. It works flawlessly and is a beautiful addition to my shack. Dealing with Tom is indeed a pleasure. I am ordering a few more to give as gifts to the guys who worked so hard to help me put up my tower and put together my SteppIR. Boy, will they be excited when the displays arrive at their door! - K4ROZ
The VBI Plus is a joint ham venture between Tom, W3FRG and Robert, DK7NT.
