hi guys,


does anyone out there know how to wire a Kenwood MC-60A microphone to the Kenwood 820s transceiver ?

the mike has an 8 pin plug currently on it, and the transceiver has a 4 pin female.

thanks,
Kevin

You read the owner's manual for both and figure out which wires are most important.

<<  I thought someone might have it off the top of their head so I wouldn't have to take the time to figure it out. >>

In other words, you are lazy and want someone else to do the work FOR you?

<<that is what hams do for each other ..>>

Really, I thought we taught other hams to think and do for themselves?  That is the key to actually learning something.

HINT: The 4-pin connector is for audio hot, audio ground, PTT hot and PTT ground. The manual will tell you which pin is which.

When you make a statement like "so I wouldn't have to take the time to figure it out", that's just plain lazy.

Now, if you had said "I CAN'T figure it out and need some help" I would call that smart. Smiley

Sounds like the "New" way most Americans think now day's,,,why do something ,,if you can get someone other to do it for you ??
Why work at a job,, if "bama" can get goverment money sent to you ,, from the people who are still getting up at 5:30 a.m. and going to work ?

I would have helped him out, or if feeling the request unworthy of my consideration, would not have spent alot of time contriving a flaming condemnation posting on here. That's just me.

Sounded to me more like  "If someone's already DONE it, why do it again?" Why even HAVE a forum if everyone should always just figure it out for themselves?

Although I've read eham articles for some years now, I've never read the forum until this week. If the general consensus of people here is "figure it out for yourself" perhaps I'll refrain from ever asking a question myself.  Heaven knows I better not ANSWER anyone's question!

You know, I am not a ham but I bet I could have figured that wiring out quick. Some new Hams just think they can pass the test, get a license buy a radio and now I am a Ham. Well maybe I am missing somthing but in the test they take is there more to it than just formulas on different questions of electricity? I wonder if maybe they should also include a test on how to read schemetics. I would think that some one who has the ability to pass the written exam. should be able to go from point to point on a print! Come on! In the posting above I saw the very good example of some who think it is not required to read prints or drawings. Why? Lets go back to basics. Fourty years ago, when I started repairing electronics I was taught how to read a schemetic. That was when tube was king.Take notice this Old Swab still can repair from a schemetic and wire a microphone.  Fair winds and calm seas.  Ted
