I was just getting ready to solder up the G5500 external control cable. 
In the manual they provide a diagram of a 7-pin connector. However, the 
back of the controller is an 8-pin connector and Yaesu provided an 8-pin 
connector with the unit. Where can I get the information on the 8-pin 
wiring if it is not in the manual that was provided?

An 8-pin connector would be numbered around the pin with the last number 
for the center pin. A 7-pin connector is numbered starting at the top, 
left to right for each row.

This will connect to the LVB tracker which is labeled  and easy to 
connect to.
