I was going to buy a 990, then changed my mind after ordering the cable.
With shipping,I have over $50 in it, will send shipped for $35 (USA).
Also works on other Yaesu radios:
> LCU-3Y1 - Cable terminated with a Male 6-pin DIN plug
(both 9-pin and 25-pin serial connector versions available) - $45.00
> For use with FT-736 (g), FT-747, FT-767, FT-990,
FT-1000/1000D, Heathkit SB-1400 and others with DIN-6
This one has DB 9 connection for the computer. For Yaesu 990,
must have version 1.30 Firmware. Check the W1GEE page to make sure it
will work with your equipment:
