Talking ELCO 90 Pinout

Hi,
I also posted this in the tech forum, but am looking for an answer.
I've wired hundreds of EDAC/ELCO 90's, all based on a standard from Whirlwind and Audio Accessories, but now I need to wire a cable for a friend, and this is the back of his Audio Accessories Patchbay...not the standard I'm used to...I know I could trace the connector pins and figure it out, but can anyone provide a pinout based on this? Thanks.

I don't think there is anyway to know for sure, but it looks similar to how Steve Remote wires them. In 24 pairs he puts 12 above he screw and 12 below the screw in numerical order starting at the top.

Yes, twelve above the screw and twelve below.
Two (pairs) channels per row horizontally; as per XLR pins one, two three...

I designed it that way, so even in a dark room you could repin or fix an ELCO90 without a diagram.

That looks like my design, but they placed the blank space for the extra pin row in the middle of the row instead of at the end of the row.

I placed the blank space at the end, so I can add additional channels (up to 30 pairs) by using the extra holes.

The holes surrounding the screw are channels 25 through 28 pinned vertically and the ones on the end round out the 30 circuits, also pinned vertically.

Did my explanation make any sense?
