I don't think that is the case with the HyGain rotators. And,
the question was phrased in such a way, that it may or may not have been the
bearing that was the problem. I
offered my experience with HyGain
rotators, because if the capacitor is defective (from age or whatever) the
rotator will buzz and hum and will
not turn. I don't need a comment such as capacitors that cause a bearing to
malfunction. I don't post to the
reflector very often, because of people who so anxious to flame everybody. 73
