    I am trying to use a T1-FT817 remote control cable with my Elecraft T1 automatic antenna tuner and also Ham Radio Deluxe at the same time. The T1's manual says, "If you want to use the T1-FT817 adapter along with another ACC/CAT device, you’ll need a Y-adapter (8-pin mini-DIN male to two 8-pin mini-DIN females)."

    I was wondering if anyone sells/will make one?

    Back in IBM PC days they made a Y adapter so you could use 2 keyboards. I think that might work for you.

    I tossed my last one when I last moved.

    Weren't they 6-pin mini-DIN? (But good idea, thanks.)

    Yah, the PS2 Cables were 6pin, he was probably thinking of your data (interface) connector.
    Try Ebay, there were folks there that just sold connectors.

    I seem to recall using the Mac serial cables for CAT interfaces on the Yaesu radios.

    I need one also. I messaged W7WEN and told him I could use one as well.
