Hi Karl

It sure sounds like a kenpro to me and here is the problem. The yeasu has a 
capacitor in the rotor and the kenpro has it in the controller. I use a 
yeasu controller with kenpro rotor for field day and I just put a cap on 
pins 4 and 5 and it works just fine. I don't have the value here in front 
of me.

Hope this helps.
