[amsat-bb] Yaesu G5500 rotor parts

I've removed my G5500 AZ/EL rotor to replace the elevation pot (part no.
Q9000408 - used for both the Az and El rotors). Got the part number from
Yaesu tech support, then went to place an order and found out they are
obsolete - no longer carried!

So... anyone have a replacement part number / alternate source for the pots
before I try working my way through the Yaesu voice mail system.

Also, the elevation bearing retainer rings (S8000208) as out of stock - 4 to
6 weeks to get them from Japan.

FYI - I've got some pictures of my last G5500 rotor repair in 2005 posted

The 2005 elevation repair / bearing replacement held up pretty good - just a
bit of rust on the retainer ring and a couple of the bearings.
