Yeah, I think that's it!  Cinch-Jones sounds right.  It's been some time
since I thought about it and I've slept since then.  Years ago I had a Heath
mobile setup of the Cheyenne and Comanche which used the exact same plug.
Caused much smoke when plugged the thing in backwards -- the four pins close
together fit either way, of course, and the spacing to the other two is
enough to permit the backwards connection.

Thanks, Paul

| Mike, what you describe sure sounds like a Cinch-Jones connector.  They
are
| available from Newark and perhaps Mouser or Digi-Key.
|
| The later four-pin Nylon Molex connector and cable is still available from
| Ten-Tec.  I recently purchased the complete assembly for my Triton IV and
| use it with an Astron switching supply.
