This adapter allows the use of 8 Pin round Yaesu microphones on some Yaesu radios with the 6P6C modular socket. The images below show the view of the 6P6C plug with the locking tab underneath and wire connectors toward you. The 8 Pin round "socket" (actually the male, or plug but referred to as socket) is viewed looking into it as if you were about to put a plug in it.
I've labelled this project as moderate (orange) because it uses a modular plug, therefore requiring the use of specialised crimping pliers, otherwise it would have been easy (green).
