Hello group,

I've just rebuilt my 'spare' elevation rotator, a Kenpro KR-500. Thanks to 
all of those that have
contributed to the knowledge base on these rotators. I found several 
articles, including one with very detailed pictures.

I'm planning to swap this one for the Yaesu G500a currently atop the tower. 
As you know, these units are identical, and I was hoping someone on the list 
had an extra terminal cover (Yaesu p/n s8000279). This is the plastic cover 
that protects the terminal strip and wiring from the weather.

Yaesu has discontinued the part, so I was hoping that someone had an extra 
or knew of a
source for this part?

I'm also in the market for a set of U-bolts and clamps for the crossboom. 
Yaesu has these
in stock, but in case someone wants to sell me these:

U-Bolt s8000223
Clamp s8000224

Please respond off-list to my direct email. Thanks!
