SOURCE: Diesel #8-32 echo power mics

cobra 4 pin is pin1= shield, pin2= mic audio (usually the shield is wrapped around the mic audio wire).pin 3= transmit or push to talk usually red or white whichever isnt wrapped with the shield, and pin4 = receive or speaker complete

5 pin cobra=1-Audio 2- Shield 3-Receive 4-Switching Wire 5-Transmit, you can jump pins 4 and two

SOURCE: I have a 1990 cobra 148 GTL with 5 pin

The wiring is not likely to be the same.

The information on the radio is here:
http://www.cbtricks.com/radios/cobra/148gtl/index.htm

You will likely need to open up the mic to identify what your wires connect to to determine the correct oreintation. it is possible too you may find one of the models listed was used by Barjan and is nothing more than a rebranded microphone.

I need to wire a silver salute mic to a cobra 142 gtl 5 pin what color wire goes towhat mic pin


dont go by colors.. go by what wires are on the switch and mic element.. mics can be rewired and no one told you the colors could have changed FYI..

Pin #1 ~ Audio
Pin #2 ~ Shield
Pin #3 ~ Receive
Pin #4 ~ Switch Wire
Pin #5 ~ Transmit

always go by connections not color of the wire. that way you learn and you can do any mic. to any radio.

148 gtl 5pin


Looking from inside the radio at the mic jack, with the nub down. Starting from the left is pin 1, pin 2, pin 3, pin 4, and pin 5.

here is the colors that should be attached to each.

1 is white.
2 is sheild.
3 is black.
4 is red.
5 is blue.

Hope this helps. Take care in soldering. It is easier to reach the pins if you remove the 4 screws that hold the face plate on. Be careful not to pull another wire from somewhere.

5 pin mic


All "older", "real" or "desirable" Cobra 148 GTLs came with side-mounted 5 pin microphone sockets. For wiring information, see...
