I just turned on my control box last night and tried to work some stations when
I noticed when I tried to rotate my beam the control box was very slow, in
addition, it would only turn in the range of 60-180 degrees. This morning, I
went outside and disconnected the ICE spike protector and went back inside to
find out nothing had changed. I climbed the tower to see if anything looked
kinked or twisted but didn't find anything out of sorts. Does anyone have any
experience with a similar problem and any ideas as what I need to do before I
pack this thing up and send it back to Yaesu in California? Using my Fluke
meter it would be nice to be able to determine that it's just a bad cable.
However, the fact that the rotor turns slowly and only partially makes me think
its in the rotor its self... Ideas?
PS: I love the rotor but I'll be darned if I ever buy something that can't be
worked on by Norms or Rotor Dr. This thing may have to go back to Japan since
Yaesu doesn't keep parts on hand, from what I've read!
