That's correct, but only because the pins in the cable provided by TT are
different from the pins on the back of the radio. I built a DIN jumper that
puts the red phono connector in contact with the FSK input on the radio.
You can build your own DIN connector, but it was much easier to do it this
way since DIN connectors are so notoriously hard to solder.
