Good morning Kay and Wayne. Kay, if you figure out what that jack was called I would be grateful because there is a company here in the Inland Northwest that I think can manufacture a cable for me that would do the trick. Wayne, if you find that old cable, I have 10 bucks that is burning a hole in my pocket.

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

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.
