Linear amplifier keying/PTT/switching cable for Yaesu FT-817/857/897/450/950/840/847

8 pin Mini-DIN to Phono/RCA

Length approx 1.5m/4ft 10ins.

This cable enables your Yaesu radio to control the transmit/receive switching of your linear amplifier. Essential if your linear doesn't have RF sensed switching. Even with amplifiers with RF switching, it eliminates the need for switching delays that often mean missing the first part of the other station's transmission - irritating at best, but disastrous while contesting or working fast CW!

One end of the cable has a Phono/RCA plug which connects to the Key, Tx or PTT input connector of the linear amplifier. The other end of the cable has an 8-pin mini-DIN plug which connects to the radio according to the following list:

FT-450 TUNER connector
FT-950 TUNER connector

FT-847 TUNER connector

FT-817 ACC connector
FT-857 CAT/Linear connector
FT-897 CAT/Linear connector

FT-840 BAND DATA connector

The FT-847 also has 5 pin mini-DIN STBY connector with individual linear keying outputs available for HF, 50MHz, 144MHz and 430MHz. We can make cables for this connector to your specification on request. The TUNER connector keying output is only active on HF.

The FT-450 and FT-950 also have a 10 pin LINEAR connector with band data and ALC. We do not currently have cables available for this connector.

Please check carefully by consulting the manuals for both your radio and your linear amplifier and ensure the keying output of your radio and the input of your linear are compatible before purchasing this cable. The keying output circuit on your radio can be easily damaged by connecting incorrectly.

Postage at cost - you pay what we pay. Proof of posting obtained for all shipments. No packing charges. Orders received before 3 p.m. are normally posted on the same day (Mon-Fri).

Money back guarantee. If you are unhappy with your cable in any way, simply return it within 30 days for a refund.
