Here's some additional Yaesu rotor connector information...

It all depends upon the vintage of the rotor. I have three of the G-1000DX 
rotors. Two of them are 15+ years old, the other one is newer, maybe 5+ years 

They use different connectors. I took photos of these rotors and posted them to 
my miscellaneous junk webpage, here:

Go into the Yaesu album and you can visually compare the jacks used on these 
units. You will see the original connector flange was round and sported 6 beefy 
pins. The newer rotor has a square flange connector with 7 smaller pins.

[Shameless plug follows...]

BTW, I love these rotors... they have turned HyGain TH5's, TH11's, and Mosley 
Pro-67's for years without any rotor motor issues. I like the 90 degree overlap 
and the large 360 degree compass dial on the controller. The only improvement I 
could ask for would be to have additional pushbutton presets on the front panel.

In the first posting of this message, I should have included AIP's phone 
number:  1-304-733-4018.

Steve, before you had posted your message, I had asked for a quote on
various quantities from Advanced Industrial Products WV office.  They
(Kim) got back to me this morning and quoted $11.50 each irrespective of
quantity.  There was a four week lead time required.  I was surprised
that there was no quantity discount.  If you're dealing directly with
Japan, you may get a better price.

I gathered from what W9AE had said that there were other US
distributors.  But for someone who simply wants one or two units, AIP
seems willing to provide them at more than a 75% savings relative to Yaesu.
