TM-V71A dual band.  Kenwood sells an extension package PG-5F, but I only need the extension for the microphone.  Is the microphone extension cable available from any source or should I make my own?  Tks,  73,   Tom

I have used an appropriate size CAT 5 cable with a Female-Female coupler.  Works just fine.  had it in a Mobile for several years like that.

The CAT-5 answer would be a cheap and quick way to solve your problem.... but what if?  Once you connect this way then you're locked in to this fixed frequency, power or whatever.  I like the Kenwood cable package for my TM-V7A.  The price only hurt for a little while.  :-)

Can you elaborate a bit on this?  I'm not sure I can see how using a CAT-5 extension cable has anything to do with frequency or power, or that it locks you into anything.
