well, I tried to get this mic to work . I have it transmitting ,and all works that way,but I cannot get the mic to work using dtmf or up/down buttons. does anyone have the correct color code of wires to the 8 pin foster? someone out here must have wired this mic to the ts2000 before

Unfortunately TS-2000 doesn’t support MC-59 Keypad microphone.

 

Old amateur DTMF microphone (MC-44DM, MC-57DM) has the DTMF Encoder inside and it encodes the DTMF tone itself.

But MC-59 does not have the DTMF encoder, mobile radio needs support MC-59 key scan method and encodes DTMF tone by radio side.

Thank you,

that's the info I received from the main kenwood office. soooo, I guess we will try to hunt down the mc57.. but I doubt it. why kenwood continues to discontinue items of impotance on there radios is ridiculous. the multi channel on there radios are discontinued from many sites too.  poor thinking on their part.

The Jetstream JTMIC1 has a pinout compatible with Alinco and Kenwood 8 pin microphone jacks, has an internal DTMF generator, Up/Down buttons and is powered from the radio.
