Cable for Wouxun KG UV980P - RJ45 connector

Hello, this is Archie

Thanks for replying to my DM from IG.

Just wondering if it is possible to build an rj45 type cable that works with wouxun kg uv980p?

Appreciate it in advance.

Apologies for the late reply. Yes, it is possible to build a cable for your Wouxun HT.
I found this pinout online:

With that in mind the cable is:

RJ45 pin 1 (Audio out) → 3.5mm TRRS tip (RIG_AFOUT)
RJ45 pin 3 (PTT) → 3.5mm TRRS ring 2 (PTT)
RJ45 pin 7 (Common) → 3.5mm TRRS sleeve (GND)
RJ45 pin 8 (Mic in) → 3.5mm TRRS ring 1 (RIG_AFIN)

Please report your results if you decide to build it.

Thank you so much. I am confirming the pinout with the Wouxun tech support and will get back to you as soon as I hear from them. :grinning:

Good morning, Denis, how to initiate the build? Thanks.

I would start with sourcing materials first.

The build could be a TRRS plug added to one end of the Ethernet patch cord or RJ45 jack crimped to the end of TRRS cable.

There are also solderless prototyping options: [1][2].

Thank you so much! Please let me know how to place an order and process payment etc for the customized order.

I haven’t been able to find pin out for my UV920. So you think it’s the same as the 950? Looks like the same hardware platform.

Tnx … Tom VE3NY

Sorry. I couldn’t either, sent an email and tried to confirm with Wouxun but no one responded.

I received this from the dealer who sold me the 920 5 years ago. Haven’t tried it yet. But will and advise.
