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.
