Re: A Simple Portable Packet Station for Emergency Communications


 

One suggestion may be to propose a more standard connection. There are a couple of popular connection methods, one is the mini DIN on the back of some radios, the other is the kantronics 9 pin connector method and the other is the older 5 pin DIN used in many of the older packet TNC’s. The idea being that if someone could make up a batch of cables that mate up to one or more of these methods, a user can normally find packet cables for their particular radio from various sources. I know you are probably not wanting to build and sell cables but documenting this could maybe assist others who could make one for this person or maybe if the project takes off someone will start to manufacture them for this device.
The cables are already available ...
