Re: Dectalk cable, what is the phone jack end called
I bought one of these special cables from DEC (digital equipment
corporation) back in the 90s.

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
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
