Subject: Alinco DJ580.MOD
de Tony ke3ed @ k3oiw.
I have seen several msgs requesting details on how to connect a TNC to
the ALINCO DJ580 h/held,so heres how i did it !!!
(after immense fiddling,these are the connections used for 6 months)
tip .. ..ring ....body
. . .
. . .=
O  ======== 3.5mm plug
. . .=
rx audio ...... . .
O  ======== 2.5mm plug
: : 10 k resistor
so,the only connection to the 2.5mm plug is to the TIP!!!! tip=TX audio
TX is to tip via 10k resistor. "sleeve & ring" NO CONNECTIONS
RX audio=TIP of 3.5mm,sleeve NO CONNECTION,body=gnd
Please let me know if this is of any use to you.
don't forget- DO NOT insert/remove plugs while the rig or tnc is on !!
