I used to be very active on the Sats, and for years; have a great set-up, but thanks to life events, went dark for about 5-6 years.
Trying to find a silver lining in this COVID crisis, while my business is in the tank, thought I would get back to my love of the birds.
Unfortunately, I turned on my G-5500 controller and suddenly find the elevation portion of the rotor isnt responding. Rotation is fine. Thanks to my fearless days of my 40’s, the antenna is up on the chimney in a set up thats a little challenging to service, so I am looking for what I can do on the ground to try to debug and prepare first, before embarking on a roof expedition.
What are the common reasons for the elevation rotator to stop responding? is there much I can do on the ground to debug, and/or prepare when I go up on the roof to check the rotor out? What are the repair options?
