Author Topic: HM-118 Hand Mike worthless?  (Read 803 times)

Just bought this hand mike so I could do auto patch
with my Icom 706MKIIG. The numercal keypad will only
emit the same high pitch beep for each key instead
of different tones required for auto patch dialing.
Anyone got any suggestions before I send this
worthless mike back? I mean, why the hell have
keys if they have no function? There is no
manual or instruction sheet included in the
box.

I don't know if you ever had any of these DTMF Mikes before,(Like what would be standard on a 2 meter rig) but with my Yaesu 2m FT-2500 (and most others I would guess) you have to key the mike, then press the buttons to transmit the tone. I do not hear the tone when transmitting, as you don't hear your voice through the speaker.

May be the simple answer ??

Good luck !

First off your not going to hear tones unless your listening to the trasmitted audio. The noise your hearing is just confmration feedback. The tones are being transmitted through the radio. Listen to your own transmitted signal if you have a need to hear the tones.

I listened to my signal thru the local repeater.
It comes across the same high pitch sound when
transmitting and will not dial any auto patch
numbers? The repeater responds "transmission
ending in error". Now my FT2500M Yeasu does
the different audible tones and works like a
charm on auto patch. Could be the old Cat 1000
repeater they are using only does analog signals
and will not dicipher digital signals. I ran
across this same thing with an older cell phone.
Anyway, thanks for trying to help, anyhoo!

May be give Icom a call. I went through their manual on a 706 from their website and could not find anything on a setting you may have to perform when hooking up a different mike, as far as DTMF goes.
