In the FWIW department: I've heard many horror stories about parts and 
repair support for Yaesu's rotators, but I crossed my fingers and 
whistled past the graveyard since mine has worked for 7 years just fine. 
However... now I need a main control PCB for my G-1000DXA's control box. 
Per a conversation this afternoon with Joe at Vertex parts, the original 
PCB in my box is no longer stocked, it's been replaced by a newer 
version, which Vertex will happily sell me for $310 plus shipping.

I don't want to be oversensitive, but since new 1000DXA's rotator 
packages sell for $499 retail for the entire enchilada, that seems a bit 
steep for just the control box circuit board.

1. This has been my last Yaesu rotator purchase ever.
2. Does anybody have a junk G-1000DXA rotator with a good control box?
