Re: uBITX HF transceiver and blue MBITX metal case.
Hi Ian,toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
My first wild guess about that 9-pin D sub is the old serial port rig control. Most of us have been forced to abandon that for USB but some of us still have radios with those. Hams who have radios with the old serial ports and computers without - or - radios with only USB ports and computers with only serial ports have to go out of their way with kludge adapters. If your station does not use that old-time infrastructure just ignore that D opening. Maybe yours has a different purpose. It's there if you can find use for it.
I have a radio that uses the D-shell connector for old style T-R switching from the computer. None of my computers have those any more. I installed a vox circuit for use with fldigi. The D-connector just sits there with no duties any more. I could buy an adapter to avoid building and mounting the vox unit. One more thing and it's cables to manage.
