I got a DX Solutions box for my Kenwood TS440 at Dayton a few years 
back.  In the documentation, I think I remember seeing that the same 
box was used with either Kenwood or Yaesu with some internal jumpers 
being used to select the radio type...or maybe it was a different 
cable.  Anyway, I think the level conversion required is probably the 
same, but the radio pinout is different.
