Hi folks,
I own the  Yaesu G-5400 rotators ( Azimuth and Elevation ) and  the Yaesu G-5500 complete with the Control Boxes.
As I have problems with both the G-5500 Azimuth and Elevation Rotors and as I still have both the G-5400 ones, I would like to know if I can use both the G-5400B rotators with the G-5500 Control Box or I need by force the original ones?
I saw that the difference between the two Control Box is the Azimuth Display, that the G-5400B one has on the left and on the right side of the display: 180 S, while the G-5500 one has on the left side of the display: 0 N and on the right side of the display 90 E.
Please anybody can help me to avoid any damage?
Any help will be really appreciated.
Thanks in advance
