  Depending on the TNC you are using with your IC910 a split data cable 
works the best in sat mode. TX to main band din connector and RX to sub band 
connector. I had my cables made by Associated Radio who helped to figure out 
the right cable to make.
  Yes I have to use several cables to work with the different rigs & TNC's I
