How do I wire a tuner plus 3 mic to a vintage realistic trc 458 cb radio ?

Hi Carl, I found 2 different hook-ups so I will list them both. You can check them out according to the wire colors you have in the mic cord. First one and this may be for a turner mobile mic. ;
1- Shield & Red
2- N/C
3- Blue
4- White
5- Black
Yellow NC

This one is out of the Turner book but they did not list your radio exactly. This is the most popular hook-up for Realistic's.
Code E;
2- N/C
3- Bk
4- Wh
5- Red
Hope this helps, Mike
