Yaesu Radio Adapter

Posted on Updated on

The Yaesu radio adapter for my MicroAvionics powered radio interface sucks. It sticks straight out the side blocking access to other parts of my dash.

The Yaesu came with a really nice adapter but it was made for general aviation connectors making it useless for the MicroAvionics powered radio interface. So I cut the general aviation connectors off of it.

Dropped by Radio Shack and picked up a 1/8″ female stereo cable connector. The white wire connects to the tip and of course the braid connects to the ground.

The other connector is a 3/32 and the Shack did not have any so I stole the connector from the MicroAvionics adapter. Red wire to tip, black to center and braid to ground.

I cut down one edge of each connector to ensure they both fit onto the MicroAvionics MM005 interface cable.
