    I have an old STS AV7600VOR handheld radio, which is as good as new. STS are long out of business, I hear. I can find new batteries, no problem, but I can't seem to find an adapter that would let me plug my headset into the weird 6-pin plug it has. Anybody know where such a thing might be found? Searching the net, i am not the only one looking, but I found no answers.

    It looks a lot like the PS/2 keyboard plug used on older PCs. This is also similar to the S-Video connector on S-video TVs and VCRs. They are generally known as mini-DIN connectors and are available with a variety of pin arrangements. Try Digi-key or Frys electronics.

    This may not be much help.
    I also have the same model STS and the plug and
    socket is unfortunately different to the PS2.
    The PS2 plug has a single male "central" locating spigot, not the "external" lugs of the STS.
    Being in the UK it is even more difficult:)

    I'm interested in purchasing new batteries. Do you know where to get those?
