[Yaesu] G-800S problem

I just installed a G-800S rotator and have an interesting problem.  When
it's on every once in awhile the pointer moves a little, about 5
degrees, and then goes back to the correct spot.   This would happen
every minute or so.  I couldn't figure it out, checked the wiring, etc.
and every thing was fine.  Then I happened to note that it happened
every time my 2M packet radio, Yaesu FT-8000, transmitted.  Go figure a
rotator with an RF problem.  Any ideas on how to correct this other than
the usual torid cores on the cable?
