Oops, I should have said:

	 'modem male-to-male connector. (straight thru)'

A null-modem cable would swap pins and would not be a straight thru.

It has to be that the Pilot cradle cable is a null-modem cable.
Or maybe the Pilot swaps them?

Yes - you do need a null-modem cable to connect a non-modem ~dumb~
terminal to an SS10.
