I recently purchased a Tokyo HL-1.5K solid state 160 through 6 KW amp.  It 
comes with band data cables for Icom, Kenwood, and Yaesu. I plan on using it 
with both my Icom 756 Pro in here and the little Yaesu 897D out in the shop. 
Unfortunately the Yaesu cable is for the large 8 pin DIN connectors on the 
FT1000MP and others of the type. Fortunately I have the data cable for the 
897D that uses the mini 8 pin DIN connector. Unfortunately it's the serial 
cable for CAT operation and I don't want to cut the end off.  Fortunately I 
happen to have several Apple printer cables with the mini 8 pin DIN 
connector. Unfortunately Tokyo RF-Labs didn't include a pin-out  of the 
Yaesu band data socket on the back of the amp.  It works great in the manual 

Soooo... I'm looking for a source for the pinout on the Yaesu band data 
socket on the back of the HL-1.5KFX.

I did trace out the supplied cable with the 8 pin DIN to 5 pin DIN 
connectors, but that indicates the one data line and +13V would be tied 
together and I don't think that's right.

Any directions to a source or the pin-out would be appreciated.

My main antennas are still not operational, but I do hope to be able to get 
back to climbing before the end of the summer. My left leg is back to where 
I can do two sets of 10 reps at 200# on a leg press on each leg individually 
but  I don't have full strength in the foot yet. It's actually good to 
climb, but not to 100', spend a couple hours working up there, and then 
climb back down.

TIA and 73
