I'm "improving" my elevation rotor setup, and I'm wondering what others
are using to secure the cross-boom inside the elevation rotor.
I've been using stainless hose clamps, and they work kinda-sorta OK, but
have a tendency to slip. I'd really like to get either some proper size
u-bolts, or the part numbers from the clamps Yaesu supplies with the rotor.
They appear to be 54mm / 2-1/8" inside-the-legs, and I'm coming up blank
on searching for some.
There are no part numbers for the clamps in the manuals I have for the
I have FOUR elevation rotors, and NO clamps!
Seems like the clamps always get lost when people take these apart to sell.
