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 

Ok, so what would I do.  Lets see here,  Ok, first I would do  this.  I would 
take the Icom data cable and I would ring out the Tokyo high  power end of 
the cable with the Icom plug and chart the results. Like  this:
Tokyo high power  plug                                Icom plug'
Pin  1                                                         Pin 8
Pin  2                                                         Pin 4
Pin  3                                                        Pin  1
Pin  4                                                        Pin  3
Pin  5                                                         Pin 2
etc                                                             etc
Now, you know what pin on the Icom corresponds with what pin on the  Tokyo
to continue: now make another chart that tells you what the pin on the Icom  
side does vs the  corresponding pin on the Tokyo.
So by the process of comparison you can determine  what each pin on  the 
Tokyo is looking for.  Chart that on a piece of paper.  NOW....  look at the 
out for the 857D and write the pin # of the same "data"   information as the 
Toyko is looking for and then make up an end for the 857  accordingly.
That should work.  Lou
