Yes you are correct...geesh I don't believe I did that!

I mixed up the packet jack with the DATA jack in my mind.  The FT-817/847
Packet mini-DIN jacks are identical.  So for FM packet the TNC cable works
for either radio.  But this is not what was being discussed "interfacing a
computer for SSTV or other soundcard sw".

Sorry for the confusion!
