  I hope someone here has experience with the little G-450XL Yaesu rotor.
I have been having problems with mine.
Had it down for a while and checked it out the other day and it worked fine on
the bench. Reinstalled it and it worked fine for a while.After several 
it quit again in the same manner as before. The previous problem was
thought to be a bad cable. I repaired the cable and as I said above, the 
rotator worked.

  What it is doing now, as was the last time, when you press either the 
right or left direction
switch, it sorta hangs there and then the indicator just takes off and runs 
full scale around
the face of the dial...BUT, the rotator does not move.

I really am at a loss as to what is wrong. I have spoken to some rotator repair
shops but no one except Yaesu works on these.

If you have an idea of what the problem might be, please e-mail direct to

A friend has a Yaesy 800 rotor, and we are wondering if his 800 controller 
would work on mine just to eliminate that part.  I know they are definately 
different,but would it be a possibility to use it for troubleshooting?

Thanks for listening...
