High quality screened (shielded) cable. Length approx 1.5m/4ft 10ins.

This cable enables your Yaesu radio to control your Acom 'S' series linear amplifier. The cable assembly has a DE15 male plug which connects to the amplifier's CAT/AUX socket and an 8 pin mini DIN male plug which connects to the transceiver's CAT/LINEAR/TUNER socket.

For use with Acom 'S' series amplifiers, for example:

  • Acom 600S
  • Acom 700S
  • Acom 1200S
  • Acom 2020S

and Yaesu transceivers FT-857, FT-897.

The following functions are available with this cable:

  • PTT - The amplifier switches to transmit and back to receive at the same time as the transceiver.
  • CAT - The amplifier is able to determine the exact frequency that the transceiver is tuned to. It then automatically switches to the correct band and if amplifier has an ATU fitted, recalls the appropriate ATU setting from memory.
  • Remote on - Switching on the transceiver also switches on the amplifier ready for use.

For a more in-depth description of these functions and instructions on how to set up the amplifier for your transceiver correctly, please consult your amplifier's manual.

CAT may need to be configured in the transceiver's menu. Please consult your transceiver's manual.

This cable uses Cat control. A Band control version is also available. For more information please visit our Cat v Band control information page.

Disconnect any existing PTT cable before connecting this cable - it is not necessary and will cause incorrect operation.
