Greetings,

I'm not quite sure where my issue falls... so if I've put it in the wrong Category please forgive.

I purchased a Yaesu FT-450D today and upon arriving home went to set it up. Lo and behold, Yaesu does not provide RCA jacks for connecting to a linear amplifier which in my case is an Ameritron AL-80B. Rather, I had to purchase their part number T9207451 10-Pin Cable.  On the other end of this are bare wires.

The cable is here: http://www.hamradio.com/detail.cfm?pid=H0-009117

The wiring is on Page 13 of the 450D Manual as downloadable from their Site. I wish I could post an image of the wiring diagram but am unable to. (Are there plans to add such a capability in the future?).

I lack the dexterity to solder these small wires and having said that I would gladly pay someone to do so.

Any takers?  :-)

73's,

Lyman

Hi:

I went through the same expericence with my AL 80A and Yaesu radio.

I home brewed mine, but here is one you can buy already completed.
Runs off the CAT port (8 pin) and works fine. I believe you don't get the ALC with this, but it shouldn't matter with the FT 450.

If you need (or desire) the 10 pin, it's here.

Hope this helps.
