SignaLink Jumper Settings & Wiring Information For Base & Mobile Radios
References to other non-USB models have been removed from the original Tigertronics document.
Warning: Tigertronics has not verified the accuracy of all of the radio wiring information that is provided here. This
information is provided for reference only and is NOT intended to replace the jumper installation procedure in the
“Connecting The Radio” section of the SignaLink Installation Manual. It is essential that you double-check this information
against your radio's manual before doing the actual installation. While it is fairly simple to install the SignaLink, it is
possible to DAMAGE YOUR RADIO or the SignaLink by incorrectly installing it!

IMPORTANT NOTES
SignaLink USB Users - The SignaLink USB is always powered by the computer's USB jack. When installing the jumpers
for the SignaLink USB using the settings shown here and in our other documentation, please disregard the PWR jumper
(do NOT install it!). All other jumper settings are the same. Note that if you mistakenly install the PWR jumper, it will
make no difference in the operation of the unit as this pin is not internally connected.
Select The Correct Diagram - When viewing the jumper settings below, BE CERTAIN THAT YOU ARE LOOKING
AT THE CORRECT DIAGRAM for the radio connector that you
will be using. For any given radio, there are likely to be different
jumper settings for the Mic, Data and Accessory Port connectors.
RJ-45 Mic Connectors - There is a lack of standardization in the way
that radio manufacturers number their RJ-45 mic connectors. We
have numbered our connector according to the dominant industry
standard as shown to the right. Icom and Radio Shack also follow this
standard, but Kenwood, Yaesu and some others do not. You need to
be very careful to determine how your mic connector is numbered to
avoid reversing connections!
PTT - You should verify in your radio manual that the radio PTT
requirements do not exceed the specifications of the SignaLink keying
circuit (please refer to the SignaLink manual) and that the PTT line is
“Grounded” to make the radio transmit. If your radio exceeds the
specifications listed or requires some other keying arrangement, then
please contact our Technical Support Staff for suggestions.
POWER - The SignaLink USB is always powered by the computer's USB jack. When installing the jumpers for the
SignaLink USB, please disregard the PWR jumper. All other jumper settings are the same. If you mistakenly install the
PWR jumper, everything is OK as this pin is NOT connected inside the unit.
Jumper Wire Color - The jumper wires in the diagrams below are shown in color for illustrative purposes only. The color
of the wires means nothing - they're just easier to see! The actual jumper wires that are included with the SignaLink are all
the same color and can be used to jumper any signal.
Note that the SignaLink USB is always powered by the computer, so you can disregard the PWR jumper when installing
this unit.
 RECEIVE AUDIO / SPEAKER AUDIO - Receive Audio is available on the Mic, Data, and Accessory Port connectors
of most radios. If Receive Audio is not shown in the jumper settings for your radio, then consult your radio manual to see
if it is available. If it is not, then you will need to connect a mono cable between your radio's External Speaker or
headphone jack, and the "Speaker" jack on the back of the SignaLink. See the SignaLink Installation Manual for details.
SELECT A MANUFACTURER
NOTE: Please read the "Important Notes" above BEFORE you select your jumper settings. This will save time and may help
prevent you from making a mistake that could possibly damage the SignaLink or your radio. Note that the SignaLink USB does
NOT use the PWR jumper wire, so you can disregard this jumper during installation. All other jumper settings are the same.

 Connect the RJ-45 end of the SLCABKX3 radio cable to
the SignaLink’s “Radio” connector. Connect the 4-pin
right-angle TRRS plug to the KX3’s “Mic” jack, being
sure to fully insert the plug.
 Connect the supplied right-angle mono audio cable
between the SignaLink’s “SPKR” jack, and the KX3’s
“Phones” jack. Be sure that both plugs are fully inserted.
KX3 Radio Settings:
1 - The “Mic Bias” setting in the KX3’s menu system should be
turned OFF if you are using jumper wires. This setting can be
left ON if you are using our SLMODKX3 jumper module as it
has a built-in DC blocking capacitor.
2 - The “Mic Btn” setting should be set to either “PTT”, or
“PTT Up.Dn.”.
3 - We recommend turning the KX3’s “Audio Effects” feature
OFF, as it will likely cause receive problems during digital
operation.

Notes
For special signals requiring un-filtered

"SPKR" jumper to pin #4 (9600 baud output). Note
that some newer radios do NOT provide this output, so
this may not apply to your radio.
JP-1
**IC-706MKIIG - If you are using the Data Port on
this radio, then you must set menu #29 "9600
Mode" to 1200.
***IC-746PRO / IC-7000 - Some users have reported
that this radio has a very sensitive Data Port, making
power adjustments with the SignaLink USB's TX knob
somewhat touchy.
Check the SLMOD6PM
Jumper Module list
****Mic audio is NOT muted on this radio.
## IC-910H: You will need to connect the
SignaLink to the “Main” data port connection on
this radio (not the “Sub” port)
***NOTE: The SignaLink USB's TX control is "touchy", making it difficult to control my RF power - This is most likely because the radio’s Mic,
Data or Accy Port gain control is set too high, but before continuing, please be sure that you have NOT installed special jumper JP3 inside the SignaLink.
This jumper is rarely needed, and will normally cause the SignaLink to provide too much audio to the radio making adjustment of the TX knob difficult.
If the SignaLink is attached to your radio's Mic jack, then you can resolve this issue by turning the radio’s Mic Gain control down. If the SignaLink is
attached to the radio's Data or Accy Port, then your radio likely has a menu setting or trimmer to adjust the gain. This gain adjustment is often called “Packet
Input Level” or “Packet Gain”, but may have another name, so check your radio manual carefully. Note that the radio's Mic Gain control on some older
radios may also affect the Data/Accy Port (TS-440 for example), so you should check this as well.
If the above solutions don't help, then we suggest that you install Special Jumper JP4 inside the SignaLink and LOWER the software "Wave" control for the
SignaLink's sound card. Note that the "wave" control is the "Applications" volume control if you are using Windows Vista, or Windows 7. The "Wave"
control can be lowered to just above the point where the SignaLink's PTT LED turns OFF, so as to provide minimal TX Audio to the radio while insuring
that the SignaLink's PTT circuit functions correctly. We recommend finding this threshold while transmitting a steady test tone, and with the SignaLink's
Delay knob set to minimum.
***NOTE: If you are using an ICOM IC-7000, IC-746PRO, or Yaesu FT-450, please note that some customers have reported that these radios have
unusually sensitive Data Ports, which can make adjustment of the SignaLink's TX knob somewhat difficult. If this is the case with your radio (and the
solutions listed above don't work), then you can easily resolve the issue by replacing the SignaLink's "Mic" jumper wire with a standard 1/4 watt size
resistor. Both a 47K and 100K resistor have been reported by several customers to allow easy adjustment of the power level. Please note that you **DO
NOT** solder this resistor. It simply plugs into the JP1 socket in place of the MIC jumper wire. Be sure that you use a 1/4 watt size resistor, so that you
do not damage the SignaLink's socket!

13-Pin DIN Accessory Port Connector - TGR-SL-CAB13K
Our 13-pin cable works with ALL Kenwood radio's that have a 13-pin Accessory Port, however there are two possible jumper
settings. If your radio is not listed in Figure 1 or Figure 2, then you will need to try both jumper settings to determine which PTT
configuration your radio requires. We suggest that you try the settings in Figure 1 first. Your radio will NOT be damaged if you install
the PTT jumper using the wrong configuration - you just won’t be able to transmit! After you have installed the jumpers, be sure to
set the sound card audio levels as outlined in the SignaLink manual. If you do not set the levels correctly, then the SignaLink may not
transmit, and you might mistake the problem for incorrect jumper settings.
Figure 1
Figure 2
Notes
TS-2000 users should set Menu 50F to 1200
Baud. Menu 50B can be used to increase the
radio's power output if it is too low. We suggest
that you change these menu items even if they
already appear to be set correctly. Set 50B to
zero, and then to five. Set 50F to 9600, and then
to 1200. To increase the Receive Audio Level
on the TS-2000, you can adjust menu 50C.
TS-570 users should set Menu #33 to 1 or 2 (a
setting of zero will result in no transmit
power). Menu #34 should be set at 4-5 and can
be increased to provide more Receive Audio if
needed.
This configuration is the most common
and works with early Kenwood radios such
as the TS-140, TS-450S, TS-870 and TS950. Some newer radios such as the TS570D, TS-590S, TS-990 and TS-2000/X
also use these settings.
This configuration is less common and is
used by some newer radios (TS-690 for
example) and some older radios such as
the TS-440. These settings are identical
to those in Figure 1, except for the PTT
jumper, which has been replaced by a
diode module (supplied with cable).
TS-940 users need to use the jumper settings
shown in figure 1, except for the PTT
jumper. The PTT jumper should be connected
to pin #4 instead of pin #3.
TS-440 users please note that your radio's Mic
Gain control will affect your power output. We
suggest setting this control to 50% and then
adjust it as needed so that the SignaLink's TX

For special signals requiring un-filtered

that some newer radios do NOT provide this output, so
this may not apply to your radio.
JP-1
**FT-950 - Some users of this radio have reported that
the Notch Filter is turned on after a hard reset. If you
see a "hole" in your waterfall display, then please
make sure that your Notch Filter is turned OFF.
**On the FT-840 and FT-847 the 6 pin Data Port
supports FM & LSB only. It may also function on only
VHF (Not HF).
**The FTM-350 requires Yaesu's CT-141 adapter to
convert from it's (unusual) 8-pin mini-DIN connector
to a standard 6-pin mini-DIN. This adapter should be
available from any authorized Yaesu dealer.
***NOTE: If you are using an ICOM IC-7000, IC-746PRO, or Yaesu FT-450, please note that some customers have reported that these
radios have unusually sensitive Data Ports, which can make adjustment of the SignaLink's TX knob somewhat difficult. If this is the case
with your radio (and the solutions listed above don't work), then you can easily resolve the issue by replacing the SignaLink's "Mic" jumper
wire with a standard 1/4 watt size resistor. Both a 47K and 100K resistor have been reported by several customers to allow easy adjustment
of the power level. Please note that you **DO NOT** solder this resistor. It simply plugs into the JP1 socket in place of the MIC jumper
wire. Be sure that you use a 1/4 watt size resistor, so that you do not damage the SignaLink's socket!

*On the FT-920, the AFSK/FSK switch MUST be set to
AFSK, and you must be in "Data" mode (push the front panel
"Data" button). The Mic Gain control appears to affect the
operation of the Packet jack, so we suggest setting this to
50% and then adjusting as needed..
**The FT-1000MPMKV and FT-1000MKV Field MUST be
in "Packet" mode (NOT USB!) for digital operation. For
PSK31 or other "USB" digital modes, you'll need to set your
radio's "User Mode" (selection 8-6) to "PS31U". This will
configure the radio to look at the Packet jack and use the
correct side band for PSK31. For more detailed information
on this (including settings for other modes), see "Digital
Modem Operation" in your radio manual.
***The 5-pin DIN jack on this radio supports only FM and
LSB, which are not compatible with the majority of digital
modes. We recommend connecting the SignaLink to the Mic
jack instead.

YAESU FT-847 ONLY
3.5 mm Stereo "Data I/O" Jack - TGR-SL-CABNC
Notes
For the FT-847, we recommend that you attach the SignaLink
to the "Data I/O" jack. This jack works for all modes and will
let you keep your microphone plugged into the radio. We do
not stock a cable for this jack however, so you will need to
build your own using one of our un-terminated radio
cables. The picture shows how to wire this cable and install
the jumper wires.
Notes:
1. R1 = 2.7k 1/4 watt resistor, C1 = 0.1uf non-polarized
capacitor
2. To prevent damage to socket JP1, the diameter of R1 and
C1's leads should be no larger than those of the supplied
jumper wires (24 gauge).
3. The wire colors shown are for our un-terminated ("NC"
cable. Other cables may not be wired the same.

audio cable between the radio and the
SignaLink as described in the SignaLink
Installation Manual.
Both jumpers "G1" and "G2"
should be installed for the
FT-890, FT-980, FT-990,
FT-1000 and the FT-1000D.
Only jumper "G1" should be
installed for the FT-847, FT920, FT-950, FT-1000MP,
and FTdx5000.
Plug-N-Play Module Installation Instructions
The installation of the of the Plug & Play jumper modules is very simply, but you need to be careful that you don't bend any
of the pins, or they may break off and become stuck inside the SignaLink's socket. You should not have any trouble if you
are just the slightest bit careful, but please note that broken pins and/or any damage to the jumper module or the SignaLink
as a result of broken pins, is not covered under warranty. Also, before installing any jumper module, please verify that you
are installing the correct module for the radio and/or radio cable you will be using (see part numbers shown above!). It is
possible to damage your radio and/or the SignaLink by installing the wrong jumper module, or by installing it backwards, so
please check carefully before proceeding. The header pins used on all jumper modules are small and relatively sharp, so be
careful that you don't stick a finger!



Module Insertion - To install the jumper module, place it lightly on the SignaLink's JP1 jumper socket being careful
to align the notch on the jumper module (white board outline) with the notch on the SignaLink's circuit board
(white colored outline around the JP1 jumper socket). Carefully look at each pin to make sure that all pins are
centered in the socket holes, and then gently press down evenly on the module until it is seated securely in the
socket. Be careful not to press on any jumper pins that might be mounted on the top of the jumper module
(SLMOD13K, SLMOD8RI, etc.).
Special Jumpers - Some jumper modules have one or two special jumpers that may need to be set for your radio
(the PTT Configuration Jumper for the SLMOD13K module is a good example). If this applies to the jumper
module that you are installing, then be sure to see the jumper notes in the appropriate compatible radio links shown
above.
Module Removal - To remove the jumper module, you will need to pull it straight out while being careful not to
bend any pins in the process. Be careful not to drop the module when it pulls loose from the socket! We suggest
gripping the module firmly with a pair of pliers, but any suitable tool can be used. Some customers have removed
the jumper module with a flat blade screwdriver by slowly prying up on both ends a little at a time until it is
out. This is ok ONLY if you lift each end up just the slightest bit (going back and forth from one end to another) so
that the pins are not bent in the process. If you remove the module this way, you need to go very slow and be sure
that you don't lift too much on one end, or put pressure on any of the parts that are mounted on the SignaLink's
circuit board.

NOTE: Each jumper module is carefully inspected before being packaged and shipped to insure that all pins are straight and
the module is in perfect mechanical condition. We use only high quality gold-plated pin strip header, and the header is
designed specifically to plug into the machined socket on the SignaLink circuit board repeatedly. However, it is important
that the pins do not become bent during installation or removal of the module, or they may break and become lodged in the
SignaLink's socket. This is NOT covered under warranty and you would need to return the SignaLink to the factory to have
the socket replaced, as well as purchase a new jumper module.
