Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, a CES- 600L is a DTMF encoder microphone with lighted keyboard. For your need:

  • almost always, the simplest requirement would be a 600 ohm mic and a PTT switch;
  • minimum of 3 wires are needed for a 2-way radio microphone to work;
  • 1-mic audio;
  • 2-PTT switch (must go to ground when PTT pressed to TX);
  • 3-common/GND;
  • in some, 4-RX audio (not needed if radio receives with no mic).
Having said the above, then any replacement microphone with appropriate microphone plug/jack could be wired to match the GE. A generic example is shown below.

Kenwood tr 9130


http://myradio.piczo.com/microphoneplugandsocketpinouts?c
states that the pinout is as follows.
I believe this is a semi standard connector that you can find at "some" radio shacks. If not you can take any Kenwood mic and soldier the wires to the old plug.
If you want a new connector try Mouser or Allied.

Xtn series won't transmit through remote microphone


Here are a handful of problems you might be having:

1) Be certain the radio is turned OFF when plugging in an audio device.
2) Be certain the remote mic is plugged all the way in, until you feel a slight click.
3) Your accessory jack could be wobbled or worn from plugging and unplugging chargers/audio devices. If so, the radio would need repair.
4) Your remote mic is not working. Try it on another unit to confirm.
5) Or the remote mic is not the one designed to go with the XTN radio.

Best regards.

I need to buy a longer cord for my PA system system on my shuttle bus...the microphone has the following on it: Executive series 100 CB68A


Mike - it would probably help if you provide the name and model of the PA amplifier too... but even so:

It is doubtful that you'll be able to simply buy an "extension cord" to place between the end of the existing mic cord and the PA's mic jack. You could probably have a new, longer cord to replace the current short cord on your mic fairly easily. Since this would require soldering and use of special sheilded cables, you should probably have it done professionally. Just about any commercial or business radio shop should be able to swap the cord for one as long as you need.

I hope this helps.

Bad transmission


Troubleshooting ideas:
1) Try the radio without the remote speaker mic (RSM) attached. Do you still have the same issue?
2) Check the RSM's mic area for dirt/debris or something covering the hole. It is usually in the lower corner of the grill area of the mic.
3) Try someone else's RSM on your radio and see if the problem is still there.
4) Check your battery. An old or defective battery will cause transmit issues. Try a known-good battery from another radio to see.
5) If all of the above are addressed and you still have an issue, you may be experiencing low transmit power, and your radio would need to be serviced.

Poor mic


whats the problem with your radio?
No Transmitted audio = mic cord faulty
Poor Rx / Tx power = poor SWR on the aerial
Dead radio = fuse or power supply faulty or protection diode faulty

Transmit buton


Hi,

Yes as long as the features and pin configuration of the connectors are the same. In its simplest form, the microphone/cable would only be carrying 3 wires; transmit audio, PTT to TX and ground. Of course others would have for the different switches, keys and other features (if present in your model).

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Cobra PR4100-2 WXVP with VOX


Hi Dave,

On some other models/brands, you need to use an external mic/spkr such as a headset for the VOX to operate. This may or may not also work for your model. Perhaps you can try getting hold of a headset that will fit your model and see if it works.

If you are already using a headset:
1. If it is a compatible model, then something is wrong electronically with your unit and you will need the services of a qualified communications technician;
2. if it is a generic or some other brand/model, then the pins, jacks, plugs or connectors may not be wired to be compatible with your Cobras. You need to get Cobra compatible ones.

Hope this be of some help/idea. pls post back how things turnes ouot or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Push to talk problem


Hi,

If indeed radio #1 has a mic problem, this may be confirmed by trying an external speaker/microphone plugged into the accessory jack. If still a no, then its not the mic but possibly the modulator circuitry. If there is transmit audio with the external mic and hence internal mic is defective, the unit would have to be pried open and the defective component replaced. The internal mic is normally an electrofet 2-3 terminal soldered to a shielded wire and physically attached to the front plate.

Alternately, another possibility is that radio #2 has its Interference Eliminator Code enabled/activated. This is indicated by the presence of small sized digits on the top right of display. If this is the case and no similar digits are displayed in radio #1, then radio #2 will not allow any received transmission to be heard. Along the same line of reasoning, if the code is activated on both radios signified by the presence of the 2 small digits, and radio #1 has a problem with its CTCSS (code) generator, then it would also prevent reception of radio #2. A way to verify this is by deactivating/disabling the Interference Eliminator Codes on both radios.

On certain occasion, it is also possible that radio #2 has a defective speaker. You should be able to verify this by plugging in an external speaker to the accessory jack of radio #2.

Hope this be of some help/idea. Pls post back how things turned out or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.
