    Thanks to China’s adaptation (and Mass production) of the Japan CBC “Foster” connector,
    it has been “Renamed” the Aviator (GX-series) connector.

    The 4-pin version, used throughout 1970s on Taiwan mfg. CB Radios and Japan Big 3 Amateur Radios, has been adopted in 2020 … by Computer Gamers and Keyboard customizers
    as the interconnect for Custom Coiled Keyboard Cables (USB).

    I like a straight cord best.

    No Left Hand coiled or Right Hand coiled Phase compensation needed.
