Does the antenna actually move backwards or is it just the pointer on the
control box you are watching??

Subject: [TowerTalk] Yaesu Rotor Question

I have a Yaesu 1000 DXA rotor on the tower. It is in a NORTH centered
configuration. Recently, I have noticed that when I am rotating the antennas
to the southeast (anything south of east for all practical purposes) the
rotor 'springs back' or backtracks after I have let off the rotational
control button...sometimes as much as 20 degrees of rotation. It is almost
as if there is a SPRING or something pulling back the antenna.  Anyone ever
have this happen, and if so what was or is there a fix?  Thanks for eading.
