Flex 6300 Microphone pin outs

Are the pinouts for the microphone connector for a 6300 similar to a Kenwood, Icom or Yeasu Mike pinouts? I seem to remember that its equivalent to a Yeasu. Yes/No?

    If it is like all the other Flex radios ... the pin out is Yeasu

    I just confirmed it ... And here is Tim's answer... Yeasu.

    Ernest and I should enter the Olympics if they ever have a synchronized typing event.  :)

    You can skip the pins that you don't use but make sure you put then together and ground them so that you don't have RFI antennas.  I have had great luck with the Heil shielded mic cable in keeping RFI at bay.

    As I recall, the hand mic provided by FRS is a Yeasu product. I use a **** mic with the Heil mic cable. Use the cable with the orange sleeve on the mic xlr connector. Works perfectly for me.

    Flex is the same as Yeasu for both the 8pin RJ45 and the 8 pin mic plug.

    Thanks Everyone. Now I have Configure my Mic switch panel (It's setup for Kenwood Mics) so I can adapt it to the Yeasu cable. Should be simple enough. I do have a Flex 3000 but it has a 8 pin RJ45 connection.
