My bulb fails at least once a year.  I just get a 12volt pea lamp with wire 
leads and use rubber cement to hold it in place so it can be removed when it 
burns out.  One of the new bright led's would last a very long time but 
would need a different power supply since they seem to use around 3-4 volts 
dc and my rotator powers the lamp with 12 vac.
Perhaps using the correct value resistor and a small diode in series with 
the led you could make a permanent fix that would never burn out.
I welcome others suggestions to this.  Jim  WB5OXQ.
