I need to know which wire or pins I have to connect in my Rotor genius using my Yaesu G-1000DXA rotor I tried to use 4 and 5 and it doesn't work any other idea or which one to use I think they are only 2 wire or am I missing some step?

    Yes, I have already done it, but there is something that is still not being explained clearly in the instructions. I have followed it as they are sent to me and I cannot get the Rotor Genius to work. I have a feeling that there must be a voltage next to these 2 pins and That's what I'll try to find out today...

    We do not sell the RG and have limited experience with them.

    As 403A is the designer of the RG, you will need to continue to follow up with them.

    Ok Mike It only mentions it in case someone in the community does not have the RG configured with the yaesu G-1000 rotor but I continue to check with 4O3A for more information , thank you for you input...

    At one time I looked into the Rotor Genius, do not own one but my understanding is that it just supplies the DC voltage to the rotator. That being the case, you would need to look at the schematic of the 1000DXA to determine what pinouts are for the rotator motor. I do have several 1000DXA and on page 16 of the manual is a the connection diagram showing the motor is on pins 3 and 5 of the rotator. Hope that helps you.

    Have you tested with the Yaesu control box to confirm the rotator functions normally first ? Maybe the rotator is at one it's limits, and if the rotor genius is sending voltage at the polarity the motor will not engage. Try reversing, 5 - 4 to 4 - 5.
