Hello John - I have just recently ran into an identical problem as you are 
describing. It was on
a tailtwister but that should make no difference. On it I replaced the zener 
diode in the meter.
I really would have never guessed that would work in this manner. Bingo - 
problem solved
for me at least. I hope I don't steer you in the wrong direction.. but this one 
has since been
working perfectly.

How accurate should the control box indication be on a  Ham IV.  I've noticed 
recently that
what should be a 90 degree turn when viewed on the meter of the control box, 
appears to be
about 125 deg on the tower.

As I recall, all that's in the rotor is an exposed potentiometer .... and I 
can't figure out
how that could cause what I see. Anyone else notice a similar thing? How linear 
are these

Thanks everyone,
John K5MO
