[now that classiccmp posts my messages again, let me try again.
I am really desperate about this one.]

Hi, I just received two fine boards that need to be connected to
one other board each, through a very short cable, which is a 80
position ribbon with 0.025 in pitch (the small pitch) and an IDC
female connector on each end with 2 row of 40 holes at a distance
of 0.05 in between the holes. Turns out that most suppliers stock
maxes out at 64 pin IDC sockets, and the rest is special order with
crazy prices $3 to $22 and wild minimum orders of 23 to 100. So,
who knows of a place that serves small customers? (I need 10 of these
connectors maximal and maximum 1 ft of the matching cable.) Web sites
phone numbers anything. May be it might be easier to find the
original DEC hardware, I'm talking about the over-the-top connector
of a DEC KA64A to the FV64A, anyone having the FV64A installation
guide that tells us the part number of that cable?

Thanks very much,
