Build your own PC Serial Connector to program
an AES IntelliNet 7450 / 7788F Radio
In place of a handheld terminal,
a cable adapter kit #7043 may be ordered to link the 7450/7788F to your
computer serial port.
Or, here is how to build your
- Purchase a DB9 to RJ-11 (flat 6-conductor phone) type connector.
- Make the following connections between the RJ-11
connector and the DB9 connector:
- Red to Pin 2
- Black to Pin 3
- Green to Pin 4
- White to Pin 5 (GND)
- Yellow to Pin 6
- Blue to Pin 9 (Optional. Connect only if
serial device accepts a 12v power source via the Ring Indicator (pin 9),
make sure this wire doesn't short to anything else if you are not connecting
- If RTS/CTS Hardware Handshaking is required on the PC side then make a jumper
between Pin 7 and Pin 8 on the DB9 connector.
- Connect a flat 6-conductor telephone cable between the AES IntelliNet
Radio Programming Port and your RJ-11 connector. NOTE: telephone cable
should be reversed from end-to-end.

• When entering Hex numbers, use uppercase, i.e.. "9A" not "9a"
• If possible, set terminal program for "destructive backspace" so that
backspace will erase the deleted character from the screen.
• If nothing is
sent or received by the 7450/7788F, make sure the program is set to the correct COM
• If characters are received by the 7450/7788F, but
nothing can be sent, make sure the CTS/RTS flow control is OFF, and that the
cable is OK.
