    I have an very old antenna rotator that I would like to power using a
    12-volt car battery. The rotator is powered by an AC current and I
    would like to use recitifers to convert to DC current instead of
    buying an invertor. If anyone knows of a good web site or could
    possibly email some detailed schematics of a half wave, full wave, and
    bridge recitifer; let me know <> Thanks!

    If you power it with a car batt, you already have dc. You don't use
    a rectifier to power an ac device from dc, rather you use one to
    convert ac to dc. if the rotator has a rectifier inside, it's just a
    matter of connecting the batt to the dc side of the rectifier, all
    else being equal.
