Hi folks, Whilst I wait for my InKits enclosure to arrive courtesy of IndiaPost, I thought I'd double check my thoughts on a mod for my ubitx.
I want to use this radio for data (WSJT-X FT-8) and already have cables for my FT-450. My data cable is 6 pin Mini-DIN at the radio end. Is it simply a case of connecting a Mini-DIN socket as follows;
Mini Din uBITX
1 (DATA IN) Vol High (Yellow Wire)
2 (GND) GND (Blue wire)
3 (DATA PTT) PTT (Orange wire)
4 (FSK IN)
5 (DATA OUT) MIC (Violet wire)
6 (SQL OUT)
These are the same pin outs as the FT-817/8. I'm using a RadioArena UD04YA interface at home and with the laptop, but will also be getting a WolphiLink for use with my tablet/phone.
