Hi all. Sorry, I don't have any Info on type or manufacturer of this antenna, but its the new type that doesn't raise/lower but only rotates.
My problem is if I rotate it fully to the stops it'll jam and Can't be rotated anymore. Only way to unjam it is to get up on roof and turn it by hand. It'll work fine until I accidently turn it clockwise or counter clock to a stop than it jams again. Any had this problem?[emoticon]

Do you have to pinch the button on the side of the dial, to free it up, to rotate? Mine has never "locked up", but if I turn it too fast, I suppose it might get stuck at the stop. Does yours only rotate clockwise or counterclockwise to the stop position? Are you turning it too fast and hitting that limit too hard, maybe?
Sorry, my experience has been go slow, and don't let it get away from you, but it's never gotten stuck.


Mike. Comments are anecdotal or personal opinions, and worth what you paid for them.

Yes, I have the 'pinch button' on the side of the dial. It jams even if I hit the Stop easily.

Are you still under warranty? Pay a visit to your dealer, and get it fixed (or replaced, if it's defective) for free.

Maybe something became loose from going 'bumpety-bumpety-bump' over our nations highways.
If you have a King Jack , here are some rotator pics of the assembly where you might be able to tighten something.
check thru the owners forums for more info.
