9-pin serial to 6-pin mini din for the ft-8900r

Post by nicoderm » Sat Mar 29, 2008 12:05 am

does someone know how to make a 9-pin serial to 6-pin mini din for the ft-8900r radio? I have a 6-pin mini din that i cut off a cable that was laying around the house. i also so have a 9 pin serial from something else that was laying around the house.

something i having a hard time is, on the 6 pin mini din. how to i test each pin to find the corresponding wire?
on the 6 pin mini din has:
red
green
back
white
bare wire.


I also have a the vx-7r 9-pin serial to 3.5mm stereo cable. is ther anyway to use this? perhaps make an adapter with a female 3.5 stero on one end, 6pin mini din on the other. any suggestions would help. thanks

I am wondering if the DB9 is the same as the VPL-1 DB9 and wondering what the pinouts would be to match as it would be easier to make the adapter for that and get the software.
