    I am producing and selling Yasesu FT-101 series, Kenwood ts-520 thru 820s, Siltonix, Swan 260, 270 series power cords and accessory plugs and Amplifier cables. Several remote VFO cables and whatever you suggest that I may make.

    As a prior Mil Spec assembler, I know quality and how to maintain TQM.

    You are buying a quality, reliable and tested product. (Yes I own the very rigs I make these for and have them lined up in my test area to test prior to shipping.)

    I do it exactly like I did when I worked full line production. Right down to the soldering station and equipment.

    Here is my link to Ebay: http://www.ebay.com/usr/chimetech

    If you are looking for a perfectly made and functioning item, look no further. Plus I offer FREE DAILY SHIPPING!

    Send me a note if you want something I am not selling. I will answer a yes or no in a reasonable amount of time.


    I have been in the Electronics and Computer Career field for over 30 years now! I am degreed and certified.

    I have printed out your request.
    I don't currently make them, but I will pull a schematic and see what I can produce. It will be a weekend project to research. I work throughout the week and do my research on the weekends..
    Thanks and stay tuned I will get back to you.

    What length did you need?
    ELP-06V < that is the connectors needed.
    Looks possible. I have no way other than continuity to test this cable once produced. You are looking at a $30 cable assembled that you can try. Full refund of cable if not satisfied. I still need to find the connectors reasonable without buying a million of them...

    I'm looking for a CAT cable for my FT-891. It's a USB cable that fit's into the back of the radio via a small square-ish plug and to the computer using a typical USB plug. Don't know the particulars of the wiring. Yaesu calls it a commercially available USB cable....guess I'm watchin the wrong commercials, can't find one anywhere.

    Appears to be a standard Computer usb cable. Just like the one you use to plug your printer into a computer. I would put a ferrite bead or two around it to be safe. If you need me to send you one complete with ferrites then message me back. My direct email is w8chm@bex.net.

    Just a suggestion- It seems like since Radio Shack closed, there are a few technicians looking for a cable to connect their PC de-9 to Kenwood TM-V71a or TM-D700a dual VHF/UHF rigs. While that may be a null-modem, it might also just be a gender-mender. Because the rigs are frequently remote-mounted, longer-length cables might net you a small profit. If you want a start, just look at what I said in the Tech forum lately. There is a tech who ordered the appropriate cables, yet did not get good delivery from Kenwood. Some of the techs might prefer to buy a $30.00 cable at a profit of $25.00 rather than wait for a delivery that might not occur. 73

    Thanks very much for your suggestion! I have printed this out to revisit this weekend. Very considerate of you to message me as well as looking out for others in need of that part. 73 Chris

    FYI Tech Forums, EchoLink, KG5WLK Echolink and the TM-V71A, my response ( partial ):
    {{{ The description of standard DTE (PC) RS-232 is pin 1, Data Carrier Detect Input from other device; Pin 2 Receive Data Input from other device ( thus it must be connected to the radio Transmit ), Pin 3 Transmit Data Output to the other device ( thus it must be connected to the radio Receive ), pin 4 Data Terminal Ready Output to the other device ( this usually matches Data Set Ready ), pin 5 signal ground ( for De-9 to De-9 and true RS-232, this is the most essential Signal ground- and should be connected to pin 5 at the radio ), pin 6 Data Set Ready Input from the other device (this usually matches Data Terminal Ready), Pin 7 Request to send Output to the other device (usually matches Clear to Send), Pin 8 Clear to send input from the other device ( Usually matches Request to send ), Pin 9 Ring indicator matches Pin 9 Ring Indicator. Ref. Pocket PCRef Glover/Young page 44, 7th Edition ISBN 1-885071-13-2}}}. Protective Ground is also referred to as frame ground, not to be confused with signal ground. Signal Ground is the one that you will need. Frame ground and protective ground are not available on the De-9 interface specified. If you do not need a null-modem, you will need a 'straight-through' gender mender. There may be another tech out there who has experienced the same cabling issue as your TM-V71a with a TM-D700a. 73 BTW- The control head extension cable is a simple modular cable- yet folks need to keep an eye on the number of conductors and orientations. The microphone extension is easier yet- a standard RJ-45 extension. Kenwood PG-5A ( 6 pin mini-DIN ) is easy to obtain ( by contrast to the others ), yet the pigtail is a bit short. That part is not ended with any opposing connector, which points to how *infrequently* anyone would use the connector for external TNCs. You are welcome. 73
