ICOM M710 Connection Cable

Does anyone know where you can get an adapter to connect the coaxial cable that runs from the control head to the AC1 plug on the transceiver, itself? I am in the process of installing an IC-M710, and I cannot connect the control head to the tuner, itself.

Re: ICOM M710 connection cable

Your question is not making sense to me. Are you trying to connect the control head to the transceiver of an M710RT, or to connect an M710 to a tuner? If the latter, are you trying to connect the RF (coaxial) cable or 4-conductor (not coaxial) control cable? Neither connects to the ACC(1) jack on the transceiver.

Oh, okay, so the coax cable from the back of the control head hooks into the antenna tuner, and not the transceiver box? I must have mis-read the instructions. I'll go back and look at them! Thank you fairbank56!

What I should have done was to look at the other side of the transceiver box, and I would have seen the connections! Thanks! lol

Re: ICOM M710 connection cable

You keep mentioning "control head". The M710RT has a separate control head and transceiver unit. They are connected together via RG58 coaxial cable. The M710 (not RT) has the display and user controls as part of the transceiver. Which unit do you have? Are you trying to connect a control head to a transceiver or a transceiver to a tuner?

I have the M710RT. I was looking to hook up the control head to the transceiver. I looked at the other side of the transceiver box, and found the coaxial jacks for the control heads.

Read the manual carefully, and hire a pro if necessary to finish the more technical bits of the install, because hooking things up wrong in an SSB installation is definitely not something you want to happen -- lots of juice flows when you press that transmit button on high power!
