The SUV that my gear is was normally in was totaled; fortunately, none of the gear was in it at the time.  That being said though, I do not have the control head cable for the 480: the cable that goes between the radio and the head. Does anyone have the pin-to-pin connection for the RJ12 (6 pins) at each end?  I have a crimping tool, cables and the connectors.

One to one on both your radios. On the 6 pin use the middle 4.

So Cliff, are you saying the cable is only 4 wires (2-2, 3-3, 4-4, 5-5) with the end pins empty?  Someone siad it was fully loaded but didn't know the pinouts.  I guess I could just use a CAT5 cable then, right?

The only caution with CAT-5 cable is that the solid conductors might not take the flexing a stranded cable would.

OTOH, cheap enough to replace if it does break................

I wasn't clear. On the 6 pin cable it's 1-1 using all six(480). On the D700 it's 4pin on one end and six on the other. Disregard the 2 outer ones on the 6 pin end and wire the 4 middle the same as the 4 pin end.

That better???

Sometimes brevity bites me in the rear.
