     Thanks for rattling my cage.  You'd think I was as busy as you are - hi!

     Craig at CATS does great work.  He's at 419-352-4465.  $50 for
refurbishing labor.

     Norm at Norm's Rotor Service (301-874-5885) is also highly recommended.
Norm has a home page   Both guys offer rebuilt
rotators, accessories and other related products.  Check them out.

     The best kept secret, though, is Hy-Gain factory service.  For a flat
fee ($75 for Ham IV rotator only), they'll fix ANYTHING that's wrong with it.
 They just fixed a really busted Ham IV for me and put in $215 worth of parts
-- all for the flat fee.  And that doesn't include labor.  

       BTW, I'll be writing a 3-part series on rotators that will be in my
"Up The Tower" column in CQ Contest magazine that will have lots of nifty
info.  Suggest you pick up a copy.
