    Howdy folks. I have said radio in title on the bench and have no mic for it. CB Tricks shows this rig has a standard 4 pin. My JFK has factory 6 pin. Does anybody have the proper pinout? Does this radio have the same pinout as the Lincoln II, Grant II or similar? Thank you much in advance.

    1 Modulation
    2 RX
    3 TX
    4 NC
    5 Ground
    6 NC

    This Pin-out covers the 6 pin President, but there's one major difference. The older President's use a Dynamic cartridge and the newer President's like the JFK II use an electrolytic cartridge. I believe the JFK you're talking about uses the old school 500 ohm dynamic. Pins 4, 5 and 6 are used for up and down buttons in some models. The middle Pin 6 in that case has voltage,avoid it.
