I doubt that the problem is vibration. Rather, I suspect some misalignment
the axis of rotation of the rotator and the axis of rotation of the mast. I
this is the same thing that causes the bolts holding the two cast halves of the
rotator itself to back out. I have had 4 of these rotators up for more than 25
years and I just do not have this problem.
