The pin spacing and size is very close, but a tiny bit different than 
all the other DIN plugs in the world.

I spent about 30 hours looking for a replacement, and the only 
source I found is Yaesu.

You can tweak the pins with needle nose pliers and force a regular 
DIN in, but it doesn't fit quite right! 

I've heard rumors some people push really really hard and manage 
to get a DIN plug in, but I was always afraid to try it!

Call Yaesu, save yourself grief.
