Man I hate it when this happens...I KNOW I remember chat about stuck brakes in 
rotators not too long ago. Then I was not interested, now I am! I just 
recently purchased a small tower, beam, rotator, etc. The rotor lightly buzzes 
when activated, but does not turn. No noticable movement at the gears at all. 
It's an HD73 and has been idle at the top of a tower for at least a year. The 
cable to the rotator is good. The motor capacitor is good (in the control box).

Any pointers to the old notes? Any insight?
