I need to know what the manufacturer was on a five wire, side mount, antenna rotator.  It is the type were the antenna mast goes through the rotor assembly and the thrust bearing, if any, is mounted underneath the rotor.

Tom -

It MAY be the Alliance U100 or U110 models.

5.  What happened to the Alliance Manufacturing Company (Alliance, OH)?
http://www.rotorservice.com/faqs.htm
Alliance stopped production of their rotors in 1994.
Norm's Rotor Service purchased their entire parts inventory for the HD-73, U-100, and U-110 rotors and controls.
CATS performs repairs and has parts for some Alliance models.

CHECK with C.A.T.S. or Norm's Rotor Service for details / parts / repairs.

I'm pretty sure the U100 and U110 were four wire.

This Rotor has turned out to be an import from Germany that was sold by RCA in the US.  Parts of any kind are rather hard to obtain.  Norm's Rotor Service is unable to help but C.T.S. says that they may have an old rotor controller for it somewhere in their warehouse.  I am sending them an email and they have said that they will keep an eye out for one.  I thank all of you for your suggestions and support.  As I now have the information that I need, thanks to all of you, I will no longer be following this thread.  So if you want me to see something more on this topic you will need to send me a private message or write to user hornetd commercial and sign ARRL period NET.
