Good day Anan people.
Question, has anyone used the DU3500AL with their Anan and the OM2000A+? If so, what are the cables needed and the wiring diagraph?
Thx

Sorry, I meant to use the word "Interfacing" I didn't have enough coffee when I wrote this.

Disclaimer: I don't have any of that equipment...

Looking at the manual for the DU3500AL it looks pretty straightforward. Page 16 shows the connections you need. The manual doesn't provide any detailed pinout information. Thetis supports Kenwood CAT protocol so you'll need to select that. You'll also need to provision a real RS232 serial port on your Thetis PC.

You might try contacting HA8DU directly for more info. I've read that he is very responsive.

Good day and thank you for responding. What do you mean by " Real RS232 Serial port"?

It's rare that we see a PC these days with anything but USB and Ethernet ports. The tuner provides an RS232 interface for communications. Thus an RS232 interface (aka "COM port") will need to be present on the Thetis PC. This means either adding an appropriate PCIE card (desktop PC) or a USB to RS232 adapter (any PC).
