I also know that ICOM has some tech info on the differences on the A200 and A210.

I sent and email in to ICOM but they have not replied.

I am sure something will work out.

Yes, I saw that option as well but didnít care for the required solder lugs. That was my fallback position, but since I had the Molex housing, and was able to find pins I went that route.

I didnít look extensively for the Molex housing, but I understand it is also obsolete and difficult to find.

Icom does offer a D-sub backplate (at least for the A210) but its pin configuration is more limited than the original Molex (and itís expensive, ~$125 I believe). If you have the installation manual (available on-line) youíll find descriptions and part numbers for that backplate there.

Default a200 wiring header

Just to wrap this up, I did get a reply from ICOM. Yes, (as some have shared) the A210 header will work and you can get them directly from ICOM or from Spruce.

Thanks all,

Charlie

Thanks for the tip on pins at Steinair. They are a great source.

If that would fall through, I found these too. I ordered some more out of curiousity to see if they were a real match. I believe they are. and 10 for $3 is a good deal.

Default Molex pin remover

The pin remover can be easily made from any old piece of steel and a file.

Get some large bobby pins at a Chinamart store somewhere and fashion your own pin extractor.

Here is all you need to know and more:

I used the gold plated split pins off ebay. They were excellent pins.
Most important is the crimping tool for the Molex. Get a good one.

Thanks for sharing. The extractor pin removal topic has resulted in several good ideas.

Just a FYI, the split pin part numbers referernce in the article in the link are no longer available at Mouser. But they are available still as previously mentioned in this thread.
