Author Topic: Adapter available for Kenwood style jacks?  (Read 345 times)

I recently purchased a THF6A. I am a paraglider pilot. My problem is that my helmet has built-in PTT ear/speaker set up, but the jacks will not fit my Kenwood. (Most pilots use a vertex 150.)

Is there an adapter available that I could use or do I have to buy new plugs and do it myself? And if so, how do I know what to connect to what?

Any help from those with more experience than I (Which is just about everyone here!) is greatly appreciated!

Thanks!

The plugs you need are available from Digi-Key and others on-line. You'll need schematics of the headset and the radio to make the necessary connections.

I see from looking at your profile that you do not have an amateur call listed. I take note of this, as well as the fact you are a hang glider hobbiest. Recently, the FCC fined several hang glider pilots for using amateur radio gear with out a license. One unfortunate young man paid $10,000 to get off the hook. Fore warned is fore armed as the old cléche says.
