The Alinco DR-135T (non tnc version) has all the needed signals on a
single 9 pin Dsub connector on the back. The pins provide Squelch (open
collector output), Audio out (independent of the volume control), Audio
in, Ground, PTT (open collector output) and 5 volts at 50 ma power. The
5 volt power output is insufficient to power much, I do not use it.
I have been using the DR-135T with a TinyTrac for about a year.
I did connect a MFJ1270C to that same connector as a test and it worked
The only obvious problem with this radio is that if you leave the
microphone plugged in it will introduce ambient noise into your
transmitted signal. So I run with the mic unplugged, although unless I
have 'tunes' on real loud it doesn't seem to be an issue.

>Since Yaesu stopped producing the FT-1500, is there any VHF transceiver of choice with a data connector for APRS use these days? I know some of the dual-band rigs have a data port, but is anyone making a VHF only rig with a data port these days? I bought a used FT-1500 about a year or so back, followed by a new one, and later a bunch of new & used ones off eBay. They are hard to find these days.
