Re: Yaesu G-5500 Help



Gopal:

It could be that the center (black) wiper wire has broken - mine did a few
months back and it was just a simple solder job - see the "G5500 Rotator
Repair" link on my web listed below.  Be sure to mark the case halves before
disassembly so you can align them at reassembly.
