The fiber optic cable that connects the control head
to the transceiver on my Icom
M-800 has broken. I know that Icom
no longer supplies parts
for this radio
and a thorough search of the web hasn't produced any either (there appears to be others with the same problem).
One post on another forum mentioned replacing the f/o cable with regular wire. The author of the post left no details and my emails to him have been ignored. Unfortunately, Icom chose a proprietary connector so I'm unable to use any off-the-shelf f/o connectors.
Does anyone know of how to wire this up using copper wire? The radio
is useless without a connecting cable.
Fair winds and calm seas.
