You say this part # is actually for the FT-1000? and that it has "push in "
connectors on both ends? 
Cool , now all I have to do is find a bulkhead sma connector that is "inline" so
that I don't have open wires inside the rig ( better sheilding ) ....

I had planned on using some connectors from Motorola , as they use the same
connectors in some of their LMR radios and just use some teflon coax scraps I
have laying around , but hey if I can get it ready-made then hooraw :)
I needed to order a power switch for my '847 anyway ....

Thanks Lonnie for giving us the input .
