    Hello, I was wondering if anyone knows which pins are used in the connector cable that goes between the Swan 600-R and the 600-T from the 11 pin socket. The manual shows you how to connect the 600-R to other swan transceivers but never tells you what the pinout is for the cable that came with the 600-T. Would appreciate it if anyone might know so I can make a new cable, thanks.

    In case someone finds this in the future: I took a look at the schematic and determined that the cable needs the following pins connected:

    Pin 2 - Pin 2 (-12)
    Pin 3 - Pin 3
    Pin 6 - Pin 6 (Ground)
    Pin 8 - Pin 8 (Dial lamps)
    Pin 9 -Pin 9 (Mute)
    Pin 11 -Pin 11 (Anti-trip/sidetone)

    Another thing to keep in mind is that the 600R will not mute properly unless the "CW BREAK IN" switch on the back of the 600T is in the "FULL" position.
