I have an Alinco DJ-G7 2m/70cms/23cms handheld. I bought a few years as part of clearance deal… two DJ-G7 customer returns for £160 the pair, both with minor issues and incomplete accessories. I had one, Brian G4ZRP the other. His is a bit deaf on 2m (but we all have plenty of 2m FM radios) and mine has a dicky power button. It came with a manual, battery and drop in charger but no power lead. I found a plug that fitted the drop in charger and have used the to charge the battery. But the plug was short and would not work when plugged into the radio. No problem, the drop in charger works.
Preparing equipment for the forthcoming LD event, I found, much to my amazement that the DJ-G7 takes exactly the same plug as an FT-817/VX-170. Now I can use the same cables for the Alinco meaning I don’t have to worry about its battery lasting. I can’t believe I’ve owned this for over 5 years and never tried the 817 lead.
You learn something every day!
