[amsat-bb] LVB Tracker Question

Hi all,

Been about 4 weeks since I went and turned my sat radio on and rotor.  The rotor is a G5500 with and LVB Tracker.  I noticed that the azimuth reading on the LVD Tracker display is not stable and jumps around to 350-370 degree’s when the antenna is parked at 360 degrees.  Playing with the voltage quickly in the back can change the Tracker display from 350-800 degree’s.  Not sure if this is a wiring issue to the rotor as I had some landscape done and we had heavy rains this summer.  The rotor turns on command when using Nova or PCsat and if I follow a satellite the needle on the Yaesu box is close to indicated satellite azimuth on the program.  Howver, the Tracker will still jump around 10 degrees from that needle heading.

Ideas welcomed?
