I have a spare G5500 azimuth rotor. I can ship it to you to use for field
day. Just return when finished.

Subject: [amsat-bb] G5500 Rotor Problems

 With field day coming around the corner, I took the time to work on my
spare G5500 rotor
setup. I knew from earlier this year, I had to put my spare azimuth rotor to
replace the
one that stopped working. 

 I took the Azimuth rotor apart and come to find out that it seems the nylon
gear that is
attached to the motor itself is slipping big time. I can manually move the
other gears and 
they seem to be working fine. 

 I will take the rest of the rotor apart  tomorrow, but I was wondering if
anyone else has come
across this problem???  Since I am unable to see without taking the rest of
the rotor
apart, anyone know how this gear is attached to the shaft of the motor??
have any ideas where I might get another gear if necessary??

 I see why Yaesu will only sell the whole motor attachment know for 200.00
plus dollars.
