Default Connector ID please

Hello Chaps,

I'd like to make a DC cable for my venerable Kenwood TS711. Like the one in my grubby fingers in the image I hope is attached but with one pin swapped for the ground lead, instead of linking the internal PSU to the radio.

The pitch seems to be 6mm - it's definitely less than 1/4". All the ones I could find in Farnell had the right shapes in the wrong order, but I guess replacement contacts will be ten a penny.

Would anyone have the right housing lying around gathering dust

If not, I guess I can re-use the link plug with a Schottky diode to link to the PSU.

Living in hope!

73,

Colin MM1APS

Look at some dead PSU's from a computer. They are very similar.

It might be worth looking through a Molex catalogue if we don't have an answer.
