Pico Paddle Mounting Bracket and Lead for the Yaesu FT-817 and FT-818
To attach the Pico Paddle perfectly on FT-817, 818, the Mounting Kit MK-817 is perfect. A QuickMount PP (without the anti skid pads) is screwed to an existing thread of the FT-817 with the supplied mounting materials. The Pico Paddle is then mounted "upside down". Attention, a suitable tilt stand is indispensable - it is optimal to use our "Peg Leg". The connection of the paddle uses a thin and highly flexible cable with the very small "Pico Paddle special plug" (Palm Radio's own miniature 2.5 mm stereo jack) on one side, at the other end there is a 3.5 mm stereo angle plug mounted. The cable runs to the rear at the bottom of the FT-817, 818 and is plugged into the "Key" jack of the radio, this allows comfortable CW operation without a disturbing paddle lead in the way.
A handy accessory for all FT-817, 818 users!
Note: Pico Paddle not included.
