Short of it is I don't know. I don't have a 5500. I would suggest you call
Yaesu @ 1-714-827-7600 and ask if part #Q9000404 is listed for that rotor.
They can answer that question for you. While you are at it as I did not
think to ask would you inquire if they have any info on who made the
potentiometer in the AZ and EL rotors for them and do they have a
manufactures part number for it. I believe they are the same part. I am sure
there are lots of folks here that would like that info.

Thanks << John
