Short control cables for YSK-7800

Post by KN4N » Sun Mar 15, 2015 2:52 pm

Seems I saw an ad once on here of someone who will make you any cable....I have an FT-7900R that I want to remote with the YSK-7800 kit, which I have. I only want to remote it about 3 ft and the cable that comes with kit is around 20 ft. Anyone out there can make a SHORT control cable of around 3 ft for me? Of course I will pay for it. KN4N

The YSK 8900 (FT88&8900R) uses a 6 conductor cable with 2 6 pin RJ 11 plugs mounted oppositly.I use a std 6pin cable+ a coupler with the short cable.this reverses the contact arangement,and works just fine.You might ask a local telecom tech if they could build you one with opposit plugs.I would verify the pinout of the short chassi to control head cable to be sure with an ohmeter.
