FT290 power leads.

Post by daxi on Sat Jul 09, 2011 6:55 am

Does anyone know the wiring for the power lead plug on a FT290?
My FT290 has no readable marking to say what is positive & what is negative & rather than open the case now I thought I would ask first.

Curiously, the inner pin is the negative....A fairly well known oddity of the radio!

Thanks. I have had one sitting around for a while & when I went to sort out the power cable, so I could use it. I could see nothing to say what the connections were.
