Thank you Jeff

Hope you visit our home page K4AMG.org.

a dummy, I did not bring the equipment manuals to the event.
The schematic gives the identifier for "U 1" but does not tell me what 
"Q1 -Q4" are nor does it give "R & C" values.

The station is stored at another location so I do not have the box to open 
and view.

We were operating solar power.

We will try that.

Hi Rich,
Did you try to recalibrate? I used to have a problem with my LVBT up in NJ
losing calibration all the time. I  contacted AMSAT and they sent me a new
F/W chip, this resolved the problem...

Yesterday at the an event we were operating a GOTA operation, it appears our
LVB Tracker about 4 - 5 years old failed on the rotor side.  The numbers
that correspond to the 5500 rotor did not track and the elevation rotor did
not respond.  The Azimuth rotor responded.  The 5500 rotor worked great
manually.  We did a test run 3 days before and all was well.

Anyone experience this problem????

God Bless
