What cable goes from Apple IIe to Monitor?

Hi,

Just picked up two Apple IIe's, one monitor, one 5.25 disk drive and two unidisk drives. But NO monitor cable. I see a guy on Ebay selling the cable but was wondering if anyone knows if Ratty Shack sells them, and what it would be called at the store?

Any wire with RCA/Phono jacks on both ends will do...

Suddenly I feel old. Has it really been that long? Really?

RCA phono cable. Yellow, if you like to play by the rules.

It's the second question I've seen in as many days about how to hook up an Apple to a monitor. Seems like composite video has gone the way of the buggy whip in the age of the automobile. With HDMI, USB, FireWire, and now Thunderbolt - I guess it's inevitable. I'll just go back to yelling at kids to keep off my lawn now.

When I picked up a IIe it had an RGB card and monitor, so just in case you don't find a composite jack there were other options Wink

Dave, the good news is that Radio Shack still sells something that can plug into an Apple II. God forbid you should need a 7402 though.

Dave...

Max,

LOL That was just my reply to Dave's Horse and Buggy remark.

I remember having lost my first cable from my IIc to my monitor "Way Back" in the mid '80's. I walked to my box of spare cords and cables and happened to see an old RCA stereo phono cable sitting there.
I thought "Hmmmmm.", tried it and it worked.
It justified my being a "Pack Rat". Smile
