Some rotors use a potentiometer in the housing to send position information
to the control box.  Be sure the rotor cable is intact (my puppy dogs really
like rotor cable) and if so, next look at cleaning / replacing the pot in
the rotor housing...sb

Hi to the list,
I own an Azimuth Elevation rotator
Yaesu G-5400B.
Since a while I am having a problem:
When I turn the azimuth Rotator I can see that the needle when it moves it
does not move straight but often it makes a little flick backwards of the
turning way. Sometime it seems that the needle stops for a moment.
