Author Topic: DIY/Homebrew PROGRAM CABLE FOR ALINCO DR-605T  (Read 2633 times)

« on: March 17, 2014, 10:18:18 AM »

I recently acquired an Alinco DR-605T and am familiar with programming HT's with CHIRP and a USB cable.

I have found one serial to 3.5mm 3 conductor plug which would is the appropriate connector for this radio but I have some serial plugs and the plenty of the 3.5mm stereo type plugs and would like to make my own and save myself the $30.

I do have a few USB pigtails as well but I am not sure if I can use that type of connection with this radio.

My questions are:

1.Has anyone made their own cable for this radio and/or does anyone have the pinout for it?

2.Is a USB cable a possibility?

3. Is CHIRP my best bet for software or is there a better alternative?

Thanks in advance and 73!

If you are looking to clone from another DR-605, see the user manual appendix D for clone cable information.  The cable has a 3.5mm diameter stereo plug on each end.

However, the CHIRP web page does not list the DR-605 as a radio that is supported.
