Actually, what I said about the FT-60 was that I'm not sure which cable
is best for that one because they all seem problematic. The problem
seems to be that the jack on that radio is machined slightly differently
from a regular 3.5mm one for some reason, and when I was writing the
driver for it, I had to keep pressure on one side of it so it would make
contact.

Since Yaesu doesn't provide a cable for it (remember, it's clone-able,
but not PC-programmable, according to them), I'm not sure what cable to
recommend.

I don't own one myself, but a lot of people here do. I'm sure we can get
some good usage reports from the folks here that have one to recommend
(or not).

If there is a clear suggestion, then we should add it to the CableGuide
page on the chirp site.
