So I need some help. I'm trying to figure out why our heil proset 4 headset is not functioning properly. When I transmit I get a beep in the headset, however I have no audio coming out of the headphones only out of the radio's speaker. Doe anyone know if this headset even works on this radio? Also if I get a dual mono plug to single stero adapter will this work? Any help would be greatly appriciated.

As for the mic and PTT, you will need to make an adapter from the 6 pin modular to your Heil connections (1/8" mono for mic, 1/4" mono for PTT). You can go to http://homepage.ntlworld.com/rg4wpw/date.html#yaesu and look up the pin out in the 8800.

The 6 pin modular on the 8800 is the same as a RJ-12. It is an RJ-11 with all 6 slots active. It may be a little hard to find. Most telephone cords are RJ-11, 4 pin jacks (6 slots, only 4 active). If you keep it short, you shouldn't have to worry about RF getting into the adapter.

As for the headphone, run it to the ext speaker jack (1/8" mono). You will need to set Menu 39 "SPCONT" properly. There are 4 settings:

EXT: The audio is routed to external speaker (internal speaker is off).
OFF: The audio is not routed (internal and external speakers are both off).
INT.EXT: The audio is routed to both the internal and external speakers.
INT: The audio is routed to the internal speaker only (external speaker is off).

I would suggest EXT for your "working" side, and INT for your monitoring side. Or EXT for both. You have to set it for each side.

>> ... mobile ham messages ... pro set 4 ...

And make sure it is legal for you to have both ears covered with a headset while mobile. In many states, it is not legal to operate a motor vehicle with a headset on - for us mere civilians.
