    I just obtained an FC-800 off eBay. It arrived but without the control cable end that plugs into the radio. Great.

    does anyone have any info about which cable end plug (and what the pin out is) was used here to plug into the ft-840? (The 840 has 2 tuner ports). The 800 and the 840 manuals are of no help that I can see.

    I’ve initiated assistance by the seller and eBay but I’d really like to see this end well.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated

    Thank you very much. That link was dead for me today.
    Between that and the 840 manual I think I’ve got a much better idea. Still confused as what to do with the blue, black, and shield on the data wire.
    The 840 manual implies they are all ground ...
    Any ideas?

    If the guy that sold it on Ebay has good feedback a reminder to him that you may have to give Negative Feedback will get his attention.

    It's worked wonders for me on several occasions. Anymore I just avoid the headache and buy from elsewhere.

    He turned out to be a good guy. He made it right.

    Any ideas what AD on the fc-800 schematic means.
