I bought one of these to use as an interface cable to my HF radio and it worked well until I damaged the cable. So I bought two more (for redundancy this time) and get this – neither of my new builds will transmit to the radio at all. The damaged cable still works but I don’t consider it reliable. However, since neither of my new cables work I am stuck with the old one. I compared the connections I made for my working cable to the new cables and verified they were wired the same.
So my only thought is that something changed in the build of the cables I just received. Maybe the wire color coding changed? Or the internal circuitry?
Sitting here in a funk as my only working cable is the “bad” one, after wasting $50 to build up a pair of new cables ($18/cable plus $8/connector) that don’t work.
No public wish lists :(
