Jumper and Pin Architecture

Figure 1

Figure 1 shows the staking pins in the SwapMyRigs (SMR), which are arranged in a matrix of 32 Columns in 3 Rows plus one 2-pin Column. Rows are labeled a, b, and c. Columns are labeled 1 through 33.

Jumper settings are available for many current transceivers; the number will increase as research and testing continue. Each pin is assigned a Column number and a Row letter, such as “1a.” Jumper settings are identified by the two pins connected, such as “12b-13b,” indicating that Columns 12 and 13 are bridged at Row b.

The jumpers shown in the left of Figure 2 bridge Columns 1 and 2 at Row c, and Rows a and b at Column 7.

The jumpers shown in the right of Figure 2 are set for a Kenwood TM-D710. The bridge connecting Columns 22 and 23 at Row b is identified.

Because each pin is identified by its Column number and Row letter, the name of a jumper bridge is CR-CR, the Columns and Rows of the pins connected. In the Bridging Section, jumper connections are shown for specific transceivers.
