Baehr Cable pinouts

I found this post on another site from a guy named Fred. It should be helpful for those that want to make there own cables or connect a ham radio. I haven't verified them but the guy seems to know what he is talking about.

not guaranteed.

Universal Connector Cabling Options

3 Wire Stereo:
Audio Ground to 1 & 4 & 6
Left Audio Pin 2

PTT switch is wired in series with the Microphone
wire which ends up in universal connector pin 5

In hot climates, the intercom may run excessively hot
and might possibly result in reduced reliability.
1- aluminum bar stock 2 inches by 8 inches
1- Chip cooler fan for Pentium PC
Grease the bar stock as required to help dissipate the heat
Attach the bar stock & chip cooler to the back side of the
intercom with 14 inch tie wraps. Silicone Grease is
recommended for best heat dissipation, available at Radio

In certain unusual circumstances, ground loops, and alternator
noise can be amplified in the intercom. Isolation transformers
eliminate ground loops and additional power supply filtering
eliminates alternator whine and potential feedback squeals.

TEST: Connect the intercom to a separate 12 volt battery
to see if the noises go away.

with 600 ohm primary, 600 ohm Secondary
Primary to the audio accessory & secondary
to the Baehr Intercom.

DIN Audio Connectors
Shielded 6 wire cable
Audio Isolation Transformers ( 600 ohm primary to 600 ohm secondary is recommended )
Panel Switches
Relays, 12 volt 4PDT

Power Supply isolation and filtration
Radio Shack 12 Volt Noise Filters work well to eliminate
feedback and alternator noise. Also available at most
auto parts stores.

In extreme cases, an isolation power supply can be used to
eliminate alternator noises, available from:

** Same pin assignments as the Female cable connectors
