Hello All;

Does anyone know the pinout for the DIN on a Kansas City Keyer KC-1?

Please let me know - I am trying to get a ham fest purchase running.

Thanks

Thanks for taking the time and trouble of finding the manual.  I already have a copy.

The problem with the manual is that it depends on the user having the cable that comes with the keyer and adheres to the color code used by described.

I can no longer get a cable that works with this color code - I must make my own, so I have to know which pin in the socket does what task.

Thanks again anyhow

Paul,
There are two ways to solve this.

The rear panel diagram notes that the "Paddle DIN", all models have the 'same pinout' but that the wire colors may vary.  I suggest that you investigate the pinout as being numbered 1-7 from the top, even though it is  not labelled that way.

Alternatively, look at the schematic.  P1, at center right, lists the pin functions, which match the Paddle DIN functions.  Follow the wires from U5 to P1 to Paddle DIN.

good luck.
