For use with the Yaesu FTM-350, FT-100, FT-817, FT-857, FT-897 and the Kenwood TM-V71 and TM-D710 to get more length on programming/control cable
The RT-40 is a "straight through" cable that will not interfere with connections to the radio.
Make the connection easier to access with this cable. (Note: This cable is out of the computer world so the over mold on the plug may hit the case of the radio around the 8-pin plug. The plastic of the over mold is easily trimmed back so the cable plugs securely into the jack on the radio. Done with care, this will not compromise the cable.)
