Look closer--Wrong rotor and I imagine you jump the other connections
together to have the voltage correct.
Again, Check the G5500 manual.

Here is the mod to change Yaesu rotors to 220v:

But perhaps yours has a different transformer if it uses pin 3 for 117v.  In
the mod, pins 0 and 3 are for 220v.
