There are diagrams and pinouts of the 1799 cable if you Google mine say
1799 pinout. I guess what's
needed is a TX and RX line and ground. Now if you can find a USB to serial
data cable without a combined
RX and TX line you could rig something up. I did something similar with my
RTSystems DB9 to Mini DIN 6 pin.
I cut the DB9 off, found the wire for pin 6, serial data input and pin 5 (I
think) for ground. The Yaesu uses one wire
for both TX and RX and my spare cable also supplies one wire for ground and
one wire for data. But you need full
duplex so you need a full duplex cable that you could just wire a DB9 to or
get the 1799 and cut the DB9 off and
basically you would have just 3 connections. I've found a lot of sites
offering diagrams by using Google and setting the search
for images. If you have a cable that has that special connector on it you
can get the pinout for it I'm sure. Just
takes a little leg work.
