Re: TM-D700A Freezes


GK
 

Just for anybody that is wondering. This "installation" is on my desk. I have the cable ran from the radio stand to the desk. It is not bound or stressed. However, I did see a spot on the cable where it looked as if it had been bent. I have been using this installation for about 5 years (or so).

My TMD-700A is 15-1/2 years old and is now in it's 5th vehicle using the
original separation cable. I've not had any problem with the modular
connectors on that cable or the one on the mic cable in all that time.

I worked for a ham radio dealer for over 11 years and, contrary to
popular belief, we almost never saw problems with modular connectors or
the "wimpy" separation cables. When we did, it was typically because
they had been abused or improperly installed.
