I have installed a US Tower TMM 541SS (5 section telescoping tower) and 
have put a Yaesu G-1000 rotor in the top section. The rotor fits in the 
top section of the tower with the exception that the keyed 7-pin 
connector which plugs into the side of the bottom half of the rotor has 
a shell which is long enough so that when the top section of the tower 
is being collapsed into the next section of the tower (when cranking it 
down), the shell hits the strut on the next section. Collapsing the 
tower any further would snap off the shell or the connector and possibly 
also damage the jack in the side of the rotor.

So, my question is, does anyone know who the manufacturer of the 
connector is and what the part number might be so I could find a similar 
connector with at right angle shell? The connector is keyed and the 
right angle shell would have to go horizontally to the right to fit 
inside the struts of the second section from the top so that it would 
not break off.

Any clues are welcome!

Thanks, 73,
Paul -- N4PD
