I built 2 bcd cables using the info from the Flex site and VE3KA writeup.    This cable is connected fromn my 6600 direct to port A on the Antenna Genius antenna switch box.  All bands 169-6M switch all ok but 60M dies not cause the AG to switch to the port that has the 60M antenna connected.  Is anyone else experiencing problems with just 60M.  Am I overlooking something obvious?   Here are the components I used to build the cables.

Thanks Mike .......... I think these 3 items will allow me to complete the cables without the PCB Header pins I cant find.

Here is the explanation from the 4O3A Signature Series representative...

Hello K1UO,
Looking at the BCD table from section 8.9. of the manual doesn't have 60M:

Maybe you could fake 60M as some other band you don't use on your system?
I don't see another way currently.

I will add this to the firmware modification list but that's not going to happen soon.
