Handsfree Mic's

Postby yellowspanner » Wed Jan 27, 2016 9:39 am

Any recommendation on supplier for these? I'm looking for the sort I can wire up to suit a planned install of a Wouxun and an MD380.

Thanks!

I'm about to do the same with my MD380 so found a Kenwood one on eBay that may work -

I've emailed the seller (M0AQC) to ask if anybody has tried it with MD380 and will let you know what he says.
Often can be found weekdays 07:30 to 08:00 and late afternnons on TG80 via GB7SU

I think you will find those are for mobiles not portables, you need both pins and you
will need a speaker wired , as when you plug the two pins in it cuts off the internal one

The Wouxun mobile should be no problem, any quality Icom/Yaesu/Kenwood handsfree can be configured.
Martin Lynch has some nice one's on display.
The MD380 is a different matter, lots of problems with digital clicking getting into the mic circuit.

The problem with the Mic is the lack of screening on the lead,and RF getting in, if you use a good quality lead (with screening you will be fine!

Do you know of any remote mic kits with decent screened cable ? Most just use 2 core to the mic element..

If I knew of any I would be using one, thats why I was going to make my own, but as I said
a speaker would have to be wired in permanently !

It could be done with just a 3.5mm plug for the mic and use the internal radio speaker, just use the antenna screen as the ground for the PTT:
