My 16 year old HAM-IV's direction indicator stopped working past East 
recently.  Yesterday, I took the rotor down, and I found that it has a 
break in the potentiometer winding.  My question: Does anyone have 
recommendations on who to contact for replacement parts?  Is HyGain's 
parts department the best choice?

For the time being, I pressed a short piece of copper wire between the 
windings and the plastic support to short together the turns on either 
side of the break.  That should fix it until Feb when it is -10 degrees 
outside, the VU4 shows up, and my beam is pointing west...

Thanks, Drew
