> I have a Yaesu 1000 antenna rotor that seems to be making a bit more
noise than usual. It creeks a bit as the wind moves the antennas around.
I recorded some video while on the tower today and was wondering if
anyone could tell me if the noise is normal wear and tear or if it's on
the verge of failure? The rotor is only few years old.
When does it CREAK? Just sitting there in the wind? Moving? All
the time? One direction and not the other?
Creaking while the wind blows doesn't indicate any problem as far
as I'm concerned- just a typical working tower noise. If it works normally
other than that, I'd ignore it.
