Don - I am trying to get my old WR-500 Rotor working again [ not sure how old your post is but my rotor will not make the meter work although it still rotates correctly. I believe the position pot is burnt out too.....did you ever find a source for replacement parts for the WR-500 ? I look forward to hearing from you. Eddie KF4LIU

Was this rotator made by Wilson Electronics???

if so; then ask them about any support or parts they may have

You may be so lucky that this was just a repackaged rotator made by some one else
