[amsat-bb] KCT Problem

I am experiencing what may be a problem with my Kansas City Tracker card.  I am using the latest version of N4HY's QuickTrack with the KCT and Yaesu rotator.  The rotator works fine in all directions.  The tracker card is seated tightly in its slot in the computer.  The cable connecting the KCT with the rotator is firmly connected.  When I boot up I get an indication that the kct is stalled in azimuth.  That is what the cw readout tells me.  Elevation works fine.  I re installed the software driving the KCT and this doesn't seem to help.  In addition I re installed Bob's software.  I still get a stalled azimuth.  This leads me to believe that the KCT has a problem.  Does anyone have any ideas?  Any information would be appreciated>  

I know LL Grace isn't in business and the KCT isn't manufactured.  Does anyone know where a used one can be obtained?  Is anyone involved in repairing the KCT cards?
