Thread: Yaesu Ft857D control cable Pin out

    Default Yaesu Ft857D control cable Pin out

    On FT857D, the cable that connects the front controls to the radio, what is the cable connector pin out color code? The RJ plug is a 4P4C connector.
    I want to make a shorter cable when mounting radio a couple feet apart from the control panel.

    I looked through the FT-857D manual and service manual. I can't find any information on the color code.

    Are you sure it is a 4P4C? From the connection diagram in the service manual (page 7), it looks like a 6P6C.

    The simplest thing to do is use a multi meter to check the connections.

    Another option is something like this:

    You can select the length you want (1, 3, 5, 10, 15, 20, 25 feet).
