2 issues. First, I plugged in the stock/factory tuner cable from the 7200 to my IC-4h tuner, but now I can't get it out and I'm afraid of forcing it. Is there a release I can't see under the boot, more force or am I being dumb? I'm afraid of breaking my new radio.
Second, what is the name of this tuner connector/plug and where can I buy another? I want to have a permanently installed line out to a tree behind my house where the IC-4H will live most of the time, which will need a longer control/power cable than the stock. I'd like to keep the stock cable as-is for portable/camping use.

I will also need additional power connectors, but I know how to get those. I've looked around and can't seem to find the tuner connector or how to release it. I figure it would be faster to just ask here.

That tuner connector is a Molex. I bought them locally.

I had found pkgs of Molex 1490PRT, which contain 2 plugs 03-09-2041, 2 recepticals 03-09-1041, and 10 pc each male and female .093" pins. These mate up to the LDG
tuner's cable and the socket on the back of the IC-7200 (and other Icoms). I used these to make an extension cable for my LDG tuner.

http://www.qsradio.com/Rotor%20and%20Tuner%20Cables.htm Has the plugs, sockets, and 4-wire cable.

They also have on that page 50' and 100' tuner cables already made up.


They can be difficult to remove. Just keep working them.

For power to the radio
