Re: Telephone Connecting Cable? FIX
OK, so I opened up the comm unit and didn't like the look of the 2.5mm socket. The solder joints were dry and the jack itself was loose internally.
So given that I've had trouble finding, locally, a patch cable with 2.5mm on one end and 3.5 on the other, I simply swapped out the jack in the comm for a second 3.5mm jack.
Now, with a 3.5mm TRS to 3.5mm TRS male to male cable, the phone works flawlessly.
Didn't want to pull the tupperware again, so close to a trip, but figured while it was off and the radio was out, I'd play some more. So now have 2 USB ports supplying 5V power from the face of the radio, plus rewired and re-routed the laser jammer head unit, leaving me with lots of extra space (relatively speaking) in the oddments box.
