    brand new, straight out pf box.
    wired cable.. checked continuity..satisfied..
    plugged in, pushed rotate moved a few degrees stopped!!!
    Won't move at all now..
    Had 2 other hams verify my cable ends with vom, and manual.
    We tried to find maybe a loose plug connection.
    cable checks out 100%
    Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    My suggestion would be to return it and ask for another one.:)

    I had similar effect when I used a long (>100 ft) and thin cable. Check it with a short cable. If it works you will need to use a cable with thicker wires.

    hums,, but won't rotate....bought a second one also brand new... does the same thing,. even with a 6 foot cable..
    I'd say I've done something wrong... Have had several friends confirm my cable/plug wiring according to the manuals..
    Need any and all pertinent suggestions..
