      Model Rect. Co. Hand Held 1325

      I recently purchased the above unit to go with my 9950.  The review in GARDEN RAILWAYS states that the reviewer used a "longer" four-wire cable for a greater remote distance.   This would not work for me.  I called MRC and was told to use " 6 pin 6 wire straight cable-not reversed.   Can some explain what is happening?  The 6 wire cable is much harder to find and I wish I could use the 4 wire cable.   Thanks.

      Bob - these cables are commonly used on telephone systems that have more than one line - have a look at the offerings from Amazon:

      https://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_ss_c_1_12?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=6+wire+telephone+cable&sprefix=6+wire+telephone+cable%2Caps%2C170

      Select a "straight through" cable.

      There are also coiled cables

      Maybe the reviewer was mistaken in saying 4 wire, or the editor "new better" and edited to 4 wire. It is 6 wire, and I bought 6 wire phone wire for another project that I am working on. I think I got it at Home Depot.

       

      Edit because my "smart" phone cant do a good post.
