Look for the author's email info at the end...

The HLN4011 is a single-code Digital PL (DPL) board that was designed to be used in the Mitrek, Syntor and similar mobile radios, and matching base stations. The TLN5730 DPL Two Code Adapter allows the board to encode one DPL code and decode another, with the selection driven by the PTT line (this functionality is sometimes called "split codes").

The pinout of the brown single-row 9-pin connector at the right edge of the photo above is:

Pin   Function
1 = External code in or out (depending on option jumpering)
2 = Squelch disable (via JU5)
3 = Digital code output to TX modulator
4 = PTT in
5 = Audio mute (via JU4)
6 = Discriminator audio in to DPL decoder
7 = PL filter
8 = B+ (pos 12v)
9 = Ground
For reference, pin 9 is at the top.

Later on, the market needed a multi-code verion of this board, and the YLN4011 was developed. This board accepted a 16-pin PROM chip and allowed 4 separate DPL codes on one board. The board, however had a disadvantage: if you wanted to chage one code you had to burn a whole new PROM.

Photos below are of that board and are by Robert Laag WA6ISG:

If anyone has any documentation on the YLN4011 board please drop a note to Mike WA6ILQ.
