Hello Everyone,

I was curious if anyone here knows of a good source for 4-pin TRRS 
connectors or solder pigtails that will fit *PROPERLY* into Yaesu HTs 
like the FT1?  Argent Data sells one but it looks like it might be too 
wide at the tip:

At $6/ea, is not exactly cheap and it only offers three out of the four 
wires.


I'm also curious if the threaded-style TRRS connectors will work ok for 
non-threaded radios.  I would assume so but thought I'd ask.


There are connectors like these:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/like/172931701263?catId=12576&item=172931701263&rmvSB=true

but I've always found these contact solder-type connectors very 
difficult to get a good, lasting solder contact to.


There are also some pre-made cables that look "promising" but I have no 
idea if they would actually fit deeply enough (they seem fairly narrow 
at the tip) but are all four wires connected?
