The Service Manual does not provide the pinouts for these cables. The Instruction Manual, on the other hand, does. Ron, 'HFN hosts a copy on his site.

Are you wanting to operate your SM-230 with a TS-950(x) series radio - or with something else? If with a '950, be aware that the 8-pin DIN connectors used for the Dual Watch cable are probably the 262-degree spacing 'Kenwood' style instead of the industry standard 270 degree type. Universal Radio and a number of eBay sellers (possibly your local hamfest as well) should be able to provide them.

Apart from that, it's all standard RCA to RCA, RCA to BNC or RCA to 8-pin Mic connector. Use 50/52-ohm coax cable for the IF/RF signals. The AF and DC stuff (such as seen with the RTTY X-Y tuning display) isn't too picky, as long as the cables are shielded.
