Hmmmmnnn- If you are talking about the 5 pin DIN to RCA dongle that TT
supplies with the Orion it does NOT bring out the true FSK line which is on
pin 7 of a standard 8 pin DIN. Both 5 and 8 pin DINs wil plug in OK to the
Orion socket. The 5 pins give you line in -AUX (pin 1) , line out (Pin 4)
, PTT (pin 3) and a "spare" no connection line on pin 5.
I just went thru this a few weeks ago - it would be OK with AFSK but not
true FSK so Ihad to make up a new dongle using the 8 pin DIN plug they send
with the Orion .
Maybe the SignaLink does in fact have a pin 7 , I dunno but I suspect it
will only do AFSK not true FSK ????
And 565 and 566 Orions are the same dongle/pinout.
