Subject: [TowerTalk] Hygain Bell Style Rotator Potentiometer
I'm in need of a replacement potientiometer for a Hygain bell style rotator.
I believe they have been the same on all the Ham series rotators from Ham-M
through Ham IV's.
With the Hamvention this weekend, I imagine most everyone like Norm's,
C.A.T.S./RotorDoc, and HyGain will be there and unavailable for a small
parts sale? Does anyone have any suggestion where I might be able to
obtain/place an order for one maybe tomorrow to expedite this repair for my
dear 80 year old friend, Jack-W9NJB prior to next week, after the
I'd even be happy with a used one if someone has a "parts unit" available
just to get him back up and running. I've done a complete refurbishment on
this unit and the very last thing that I found was the open pot winding.
Bummer! Terrible timing too.
Thanks and 73, -=Rog-K9RB=-
