Thanks Monte. That’s a shame. I should probably check with my old friends who I know to have drawers full of old cables and electronic relics from the 1980s

As I recall, it was a proprietary cable; the rj45 type end was not standard, it has a sort of offset to it.
One of my buddies is sending me a Dectalk external to have some fun with, but it has no cables. I seem to remember that the cable that connects it to the serial port on the PC has a 9 pin female on one end, and a phone jack kind of RJ45 looking plug for the Dectalk. I know that the Dectalk end was smaller than the RJ45, but bigger than a phone jack. I’m trying to find a cable to hook up the Dectalk. What is the name of the end that fits the Dectalk? RJ11 or RJ12 maybe? Thanks.
