We have run into real difficulty trying to solder the Yaesu connector plug 
to our cable...this type of solder requirement is beyond our capability. One 
almost needs to be a jeweler to get
these connections on the plug without any shorts between the pins. Combine 
this with someone who does not have perfect eyesight, and you have the 
recipe for failure! Has anyone any suggestions on how we might overcome this 
problem? This rotator is a replacement for our old Create rotator that had a 
plug connection that looked more like a rugged military plug. Is there 
someway to obtain a Yaesu plug alrady wired such that we could connect with 
larger more manageable connections? For us, the new rotator is totally 

Any suggestions would be most appreciated at this point.
