Octal plug and shell - available?

Post by Bill Jansse » Thu, 16 Jun 2005 12:55:25



I have a couple of Heath radios that need the Octal plug and shell
(hood) to make up
some connecting cords.

Anyone know a supplier for these? I know I can make do with a tube base
(which I have)
but would rather use the plug and shell.

Thanks

For future reference, RadioDaze has them.  Cleverly hidden under Vacuum
Tube Accesories and Plugs.

"Metal Marine Pilot" in Tacoma, Washington used to have these as a stock
item. Don't know company's status.

Let's halt any rumors beginning (again) about "unavailable components"

You Octal socket in plug was originally made by Amphenol, their Series 86
http://www.wpi-interconnect.com/salem.htm

Amphenol "spun-off" this connector (and several others) as well as the
Salem, NJ factory where these are made to Wire-Pro, Inc. (WPI) in the 1980s.
Here is their main web page:
http://www.wpi-interconnect.com/

Section 4 of the WPI catalog has photos and specs
http://www.wpi-interconnect.com/Catalogs/WPICatalog/WPI%20catalog%20P...

WPI connectors are available from the regular radio parts distributors that
have been around for decades (Allied Radio, Newark, etc.)

Triode Electronics, owned by Ned Carlson in Chicago, IL also has these
connectors in stock.  5633 W Irving Park Rd, Chicago IL 60634 USA Ph
773-871-7459 Fax 773-327-5652   Open 11 AM to 7 PM CT, (1700-0100 UTC)

ARE YOU SURE IT NOT A 11 PIN YOU ARE LOOKING FOR?  MANY OF THE HEATH
TRANSCEIVERS USED THEM.  I HAVE ONE OR TWO IF THAT IS WHAT YOU NEED.

CHECK MY WEBSITE: www.dialcover.com

Very good. I now have a couple of sources for these plugs. If the price
is reasonable
I can use three.

Thanks for the suggestions (2 of em)
