Any idea which radios use those 7-pin connectors? As far as i know almost every "new age" mil radio use 6-pin connector. Is those 7-pin things then for something "old" like clansmans etc...

Not a specialist but I think Clansman radios have 7 pins plugs.

Here's some info on it. It is from a Prc-343. Yes it is used in the old clansman radios. Not sure if the English still use those connectors though.

What you guys think, how hard it would be to change that connector to QD or the 6-pin connector which almost all new military radios use?

Take the pinout for the Clansman plug, and place the wires the way the the U329 (MBITR) plug needs to work (pin A, B, C and D).

Sounds doable.
1. How good are your solder skills?
2. Do you have all the materials to make it happen?

Not very good. And no i dont have anything else than the soldering iron and some tin. But those r like cheapest shit u can buy from some market. I know one place near by which could probably make those soldering works for small fee. Do i need something else than the new plug and ofc those wiring diagrams?

And i would maybe like to go with QD plug since i already have two of them and they work flawlessly with different motorola and kenwood radios (depends which adaptor and radio setup i use).

Helping hands for soldering the plug would sure help. Radio shack has some. You might need to use a multi meter to test and verify what wire does what.

I am almost sure that the plug in the video is too small.

It is supposed to be that small, im going to use adapter to switch it between kenwood and motorola plugs since those manufacturers make good and rugged radios and cost less than any good radio that i can buy (as "civil") and uses U329 connector.

Is that little QD Plug Lemo? I know the headset connector is Lemo L series but i have no idea which type of connector that little QuickDetach connector could be? And where i could get one of those, Lemo site doesnt have any online shop to get those :(
