Thanks for this.  I am still waiting for Kenwood to send me two of their connectors, supposedly arriving from Japan.  It would be really good if a non-Kenwood source is found for spare parts.  Once I receive the connectors, I am going to ship the D700 to Innovative Circuits, my repair shop, who is waiting for it.  Hopefully it will be an easy fix to mount the connector.


I will post results.

I was wrong, the connector pitch is 0.5mm.
I got it wrong because half the pins (13) are on one side and the other 13 are on the other.  And the spacing between the PCB pin pads is 1.00mm.  I got the 1.00mm pitch connectors from Farnell and, of course, they are huge!
I have re-ordered 26 way 0.5mm pitch connectors - will let you know how it goes.
