Thanks to all that replied to my request for help. Problem was in the rotor 
cable, about 22 inches from the rotor found cable jacket bruised (three of 
the six wires found to be broken). Cause unknown appears that the cable was 
compressed (squashed) and  subsequent movement back and forth over a period 
of time finally broke wires inside jacket . Using a power supply in the 
shack and a test bulb at the rotor, we were puzzled, as to why using one 
wire as common, that three wires failed the test. It was just by chance that 
we found the damaged spot. The Rotor Gods were with us today hi hi.

Thanks Again, Hope to be back up and running soon.
