Beware! Forcing one of these plugs has been know to break the insulator in
the jack.

The Yaesus and Kenwoods that have 8 pin DIN plugs are indeed a special 
size.  The problem, I believe it the positioning of the pins across the 
side with the index notch.  The Radio Shack connectors will not fit 
(however, I think they do fit ICOMs).

Fortunately, I have a little electronic store a few miles away who (for 
some reason) carries the right 8 -pin DIN.  I know Amateur Electronic 
Supply also carries these special 8-pin DINs as well.
