Subject: Homemade #505 Cable Sent: Friday, February 10, 2012 13:34:22 From: Paul Smith (firstname.lastname@example.org) Thanks for a great wealth of information on your site! I've had my ETX-90 for about a dozen years and haven't used it much. Your site has given me renewed interest! In making my own 505 cable I discovered that the 4 conductor phone plug is not a typical RJ11 plug. After re-reading some of the threads here, I found where someone identified it as an RJ10. What I have found is the plug is an RJ22 which, as mentioned in a thread, is the plug for the handset. (Until now I didn't know there was a difference.) The difference is the RJ11 is a 6 position 4 conductor plug and the RJ22 is a 4 position 4 conductor plug. After a thorough search I discovered there where about 3 vendors in existence that supply this and I didn't need 25 or 50. I narrowed the RJ11 plug approximately .025" from each side. Although there is a slight difference in height, my modified RJ11 fit the Autostar like a snug glove! Hope this is helpful for someone!
