My Light and Motion external monitor cable has finally died. Does anyone know who will custom make a new cable to fit the "proprietary" four pin wet connectors?
If any of you out there can do this, I would be happy to negotiate the project with you.

I have solved the problem and the solution may be of use to anyone else with L&M cables.

The cables are manufactured by Subconn and are available in the USA through MJ Stewart. You can contact them via email at:

Jennifer Stewart [jen@mjstew.com]

or phone 781 829 4044

Out of USA, go to the Subconn website and locate your nearest distributor.

MJS was super to work with and did not have a minimum order. I ordered two and they will have them to me before leaving for 6 weeks in the western Pacific.

The cost for two was about 60% of the Backscatter listed price for one; and they no longer carry the item.

One would think that L & M would support past products. I can't imagine them not even having a cable. Just basic customer support.
