I just had a similar situation: Bought a G2800 but already had about 200+' 
of existing buried rotor cable, so what came in the G2800 kit was surplus to 
my needs.

The Molex connectors & pins (both male & female) as well as the connector 
for the rotor are available from Yaesu (in the USA, anyway). The parts are 
not especially cheap (maybe around US$30), but they are available. You will 
also need a suitable crimp tool for the Molex pins; the pins for the rotor 
connector can be soldered.

Since you can buy plug & shell, plus both genders of pins, you can easily 
make extension cables, test jigs, or remote pigtails for testing right at 
your tower. Similarly, the older SDX rotor controllers (all of them: G800, 
G1000, G28000) are compatible with the newer DXA series, except they use 
different connectors....if you can obtain the older connectors, you can make 
pigtails so you can swap rotors & controllers as spares.

I suggest you contact your local distributor. Worst case, if that fails, you 
can order the parts from the Yaesu USA.

About a month ago I ordered these parts and can look up the part numbers if 
you need them.

Perhaps Mouser, Digikey, and other large parts houses have them, but I don't 
know for sure.

I recently bought an Yaesu G-2800 rotor which came along with a 131 ft long
control cable. However, I need at least 196 ft long cable. Cable is not a
problem but where can I find both connectors? Anyone has faced that before?
Suggestion? Cheaper prices?
