Title: 1/8" mono audio mini jack cable
Post by: KENB on October 16, 2013, 09:11:58 PM
I need  this cable for paging out of a DSX 80.

The radio shack cables are such a pia with the stranded cable.

I once bought one that had solid copper wires and  could easily
punch  down on a block or  screw down on a biscuit jack.

Anyone know where i can buy more ??

Thank you

I always use B connectors & cross-connect wire

I solder an end on.  Radio shack has a nice soldering iron in a red case and I keep a few ends in the case along with some solder

Dave,Hal,Don

Thank you for the prompt replies.

I will go with the  B connectors and crossconnect wire , not a fan of soldering.

Plus I cant stand the @#$%^ in radio shack.  :008:
