Many Thank's Mak
Our outside temperature is now +1C and the rotor is working it is confirm water
in in the casing and probably gets in by the drain hole that i never found on
my unit and if there is any he will be at the top offering a very good moisture
access point. Is it also possible that humidity succeed to form inside by
temperature variation and or by entering by the joingning sections.
My model a Yaesu G-550 looks like the same as the Kenpro KR-500 and does not
seems to have any drainage hole in the casing but this will have to be visually
Looking at the exploded inside schematic picture of the rotor it seems that it
is possible to drill a hole in the casing to drain this excess water? Could be
someone who open one can confirm if there is enough clearance to avoid drilling
through the gear/motor system?
Thank's for all your advices and for all the private one too.
