Does anyone know where you can get an 8-pin din a-b switch compatible with the 8-pin din accessory jack on the back of an Icom 746? Thanks. Rene K5JX

OOOPS! Sorry, that one is MINI DIN.
Keep searching, Google is your friend.
But is seems the MINI DIN's are much more plentiful and
easy to find. That one above is only $2.99. You could buy the
8 PIN jacks, a small file, and rig it for regular 8 DIN. Tedious job but
not a show stopper. In my experience those cheap data switches
have lots of extra wire to play with inside. Just be sure to label
all the wires before cutting them or you will spend an hour with your DVM
sorting out what's what! (Don't ask me how I know that!) Roll Eyes

 for all who  want to enlage holes or don't have the propper drill..

Harbor Freight or elsewhere,    step drills.
I bought a pack of  3 sizes for just a couple bucks.
they make nice  round  smooth holes  to any size up to half inch  with
my set..
a step at a time, not like a tapered reamer where you have to guess..

Battery, variable speed    'screw shooter'  works fine.
