This cable enables your Yaesu radio to control the transmit/receive switching of your linear amplifier(s). Essential if your linear doesn't have RF sensed switching. Even with amplifiers with RF switching, it eliminates the need for switching delays that often mean missing the first part of the other station's transmission - irritating at best, but disastrous while contesting or working fast CW!
end of the cable has a 5-pin mini-DIN plug which connects to the
transceiver's SBY socket. The other end has four colour-coded, female
phono (RCA) tails, one each for HF, 50MHz, 144MHz and 430MHz. A phono to
phono cable is used to connect each tail to the Key, Tx or PTT input
connector of the respective linear amplifier for each band.
A replacement for the unobtainable Yaesu CT-61 SBY cable.
will also need a phono (RCA) to phono (RCA), screened (shielded) cable
for each amplifier. Since the number of cables and lengths required will
vary widely according to individual requirements, we do not supply them
with the pigtail. Suitable cables can be sourced locally or on-line
from an Audio/Video accessories supplier.
If you only need to switch your HF linear, you can use our 8 pin cable in the TUNER socket.
Please check carefully
by consulting the manuals for both your radio and your linear
amplifier(s) and ensure the keying output of your radio and the input of
your linear(s) are compatible before purchasing this cable. The keying
output circuit on your radio can be easily damaged by connecting
Although we are happy to offer advice, it is ultimately your responsibility to verify that the switching output of your transceiver and the switching input of your amplifier can be safely connected to each other using this cable.
