Cables for ICOM IC-M803
I own an ICOM IC-M801E. I want to connect this using a Digirig, which I will buy (presumably RS232 version), and I need to be sure about cables and pin-outs.

I have compared your answers in the M803 thread with the manual I have for the M801E. The two radios are similar, but the pin-outs for the AF/MOD and REMOTE 9-pin connectors are different. Please can you confirm if I’ve correctly identified how I need to build my cables.
The manual for the M801E is attached. See page 59 for the pin-outs
I think the cables should be built as follows…is this right?
Also, will the PTT function work properly?
(Bold text is the difference from the M803).
DB9 pin 1 (MOD+) → 3.5mm TRRS ring1 (RIG_AFIN)
DB9 pin 2 (MOD-) →
DB9 pin 3 (GND) →
DB9 pin 5 (AF-) →
DB9 pin 6 (GND) →
DB9 pin 9 (GND) → 3.5mm TRRS sleeve (GND)
DB9 pin 3 (AF+) → 3.5mm TRRS tip (RIG_AFOUT)
DB9 pin 5 (SEND) → 3.5mm TRRS ring2 (PTT)
The serial CAT cable will be to REMOTE connector:
DB9 pin2 (RXD) → 3.5mm TRRS tip (RIG_RXD)
DB9 pin3 (TXD) → 3.5mm TRRS ring1 (RIG_TXD)
DB9 pin5 (GND) → 3.5mm TRRS sleeve (GND)
DB9 pin7 (RTS) →
DB9 pin8 (CTS)
