Years ago when I use to have the tech talk
external I purchased a cable for it that's much longer than the one that
comes with it. I have to go through my mass of cables, since I think I have it.
If I find it I'll let you know, and sell it to you for $10. This cable is new.
if you have any questions just ask.

Subject: Re: [TechTalk] Dectalk cable,
what is the phone jack end called
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?
