Re: G-5600b rotor 8pin din plug



I don't have the pinout handy, but it's pretty easy to figure out with a multimeter.
Go through the pins and figure out which one is grounded.  While you are doing
this the pins that control the az and el relays will be more than obvious because the 
relays will close as you check them to ground.  Once you've found ground,. switch
to voltmeter and find the two pins that have 0-5 volts on them and these will be the
return from the position pots.  It helps if the rotator is moved off of 0 degs elevation
or 180 degs azimuth so the the returns from the pots aren't reading zero as you
try to find them.
