        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
