These cables and connectors fit most HF radios made by ICOM, Yaesu, Kenwood, and Alinco from the 1980s through the early 2000s.  At left is a close-up of the connector.  If your radio was made by one of those four manufacturers, and the connector looks similar, then this is the right part.  Newer HF Radios -- like the ICOM IC-7000, Kenwood TS-480, and Yaesu FT-450 use a different 4-pin plug.  Scroll down the page for those cables.
DC-HF-Cord HF Power Cord 8' #12 Fully assembled, includes fuses in both wires.  6-pin plug (four are used) Fits most HF Rigs from ICOM, Yaesu, Kenwood, and Alinco (not FT-100, FT-817, FT-450, FT-950, IC-703, IC-7000,  TS-480 or Ten-Tec)

Almost all Handie-Talkies, and many other accessories, use one of the following four cables.  Here's an easy way to determine which one you need.  Get out a standard drill bit assortment.  Cable-13 is very close to 9/64" OD.  Cable-17 is very close to 5/32" OD.  Cable-21 and Cable-25 are both very close to 7/32" OD, BUT -- a 3/32" bit will slip inside of Cable-25 and will NOT slip inside of Cable-21.

We reserve the right to ship orders by whatever method we deem best in all cases.
