Hi Terry,

Our contest station have two Yaesu G1000C rotor and have the same problem.
I posted this question here before, but no answer.

Recently, BA7IAG told me, he fixed one!

He replaced the CNTL-UNIT cricuit board from another G450 rotator
controller, then all is OK. 
But he didn't check and compare which parts was wrong at this moment. 
He will do this job later to fix another G1000, I will let you if we have

73! de BA7NQ Terry
