Radio Comms Thread

I own a T5022 too, and it has a 1 pin connector, the other hole is dummy and void inside!

 

It's true that chinese programmable radios can't be used as a PMR 446 radios legally in Europe. But in practice authorities doesn't really care unless you use it outside the PMR 446 frequencies.

 

If you already have a Baofeng, it's better to sell these cheap Moto 2-pin PTTs and get a new one for it (Kenwood 2 pin).

aahhh for *fruitcage*s sake!!!! Why would they do that!?   :D Oh well - thanks so much.  I'll bear the baofeng in mind but for now will get a two pin to one pin adaptor? Any guidance on whether this is suitable?

Apologies for the spoon feeding but I don't trust anything anymore  :fear:

I could have sworn this had been covered here before but using the search function (this is over 50 pages long after all) but I can't find it.

 

I'm wondering if any of you have the correct information having gone down that route.  I have a TTi TXL-446 and am trying to work out which 2-pin connectors work for it, i.e. which headsets I can use.

So I got my sordin sorted out, but I've got a new issue, this one with a M3 in ear headset.

 

The headset is receiving transmission fine, but fails to transmit at all. According to TEA, who have the headset, my radios, adapters and a ptt there, the headset works fine, but they think the radio is not outputting the right voltage. That being said, it's an electric mic and shouldn't need an amplifier.

 

The M3 has a Lemo connection, which is connected to a mk3 ptt, to a 10 pin to 6 pin adapter, to a 6 pin to kenwood adapter, which in turn I have plugged into a puxing uv973 or 777.

 

 

Does anyone have experience with the M3 headset? Even just photos of one working and hooked up to a civilian radio would be great.

Found a guy on FB that sells them amplified for €70 a piece. They work a treat.

 

Unfortunately one of my Baofengs doesn't work with them at all (the plugs feel a little loose, so that must be the issue). It does work with the crappy headset it came with, so it must be that.
