Alinco DJ-580T to MFJ TNC.

I just found a decent diagram online, so I am gonna try to roll my own.  So
much for blowing a few extra bucks on a premade cable. ;)

You didn't specify what brand/model TNC or what model Alinco radio you have.

If you are using a Kantronics TNC, then I would recommend searching the
webpages that sell the TinyTracker and OpenTracker (they have the same
connection).  I purchased a cable to connect my Kantronics KPC3+ to my Icom
IC-2200H from Byonics.com.  It was short, well made and has a power lead on
it so I can power the TNC through the DB9 connector.

Anyone have a good source for Radio <> TNC Cables.

Just tried to do business with Buxcomm, and after getting the improper cable
twice, I was told the common connector on my Alinco was proprietary and
unsupported, given an RMA, and hung up on.

Someone that's pleasant to do business with would be a plus too, but if the
the cable is right, I will take what I can get. :)
