Ameritron Band Data Interface Cables DB-8DY
Interface Cable, Ameritron ALS-1306 or RCS-12C to Yaesu, 8-pin DIN, BAND DATA Port, Each
Ameritron Band Data Interface Cables enable automatic band changing on the NEW Ameritron ALS-1306 HF/6M Amplifier! Or, they can provide band data to the Ameritron RCS-12C Automatic Remote Antenna Switch. Compatible with most modern Icom, Yaesu, and Kenwood transceivers, these optional Band Data Interface Cables send band changing instructions from a transceiver to only the specific devices that have built-in band decoders, like the ALS-1306 and the RCS-12C. Their band decoders are the internal circuits that accomplish automatic band changing or antenna switching. Depending on transceiver model, many of these special interface cables also support amplifier keying of the ALS-1306 Amplifier. Some interface cable and transceiver combinations will support amplifier keying through the RCS-12C Automatic Antenna Switch Controller.
All Ameritron Band Data Interface Cables are specialized assemblies that have DB9F connectors on one end for the ALS-1306 or RCS-12C "Radio Input" DB9M connector. On the other end of these radio-specific cable assemblies are one or two of the appropriate connectors that allow proper connection and operation with supported transceivers. The radio brand and model listings at the left of this Ameritron Band Data Interface Cables web page, under "Narrow Your Results", will help you determine which of these cables will work with your transceiver. If your transceiver is not listed, then chances are it doesn't have band data output or it is not supported by these devices and cables.
