Looking for pin 8

I was hoping to use an old VGA cable to build "power on" cable for the K3.
If I had looked more closely at the VGA wiring diagram, I would have seen
that pin 8 is not "wired" but simply grounded.

Fat fingers... Make that wandering "mouse"....

Many of you are aware of the incompetence I have to put up with here in the radio room.  I was reminded of this again today when the K-Line quit transmitting on 20m.  It was fine on every other band. On 20m there was no power out to the amp and the exciter reported a very high SWR. The answer was painfully simple.  It just took several hours to identify.  The originating cause can be seen in the following image.


Notice the buttons immediately adjacent to the "Tune" button.

What was the problem?
