Question about Kenwood FreeTalk XL TK-3101 (15 Channels) 2-Way Radio
I'm using the autocom device on my bike w/ the kenwood tk3102. it receives great from the second unit as a handheld but won't transmit.
both radios' lights come on as they should, but the receiving radio just has white noise and no voice. both radios work perfect by themselves. i have all the appropriate leads, are the radios compatible?

with the indulgence of IrishDruid and many thanks to micromaster....
The radios are compatible since as you posted "...both radios work perfect by themselves..."
Based on your post, I would suspect that the transmit audio line from the Autocom to the mic input of the Kenwood TK3102 is faulty/not connecting right. All others (receive audio and PTT) are wired correctly. This is inline with what IrishDruid has initially posted. Additionally, the Autocom is also working since it kicks the PTT through its VOX (voice activated relay) and there is transmit (albeit the TX audio) or manual PTT.
Additionally, there are some 2.5mm connectors that are just a bit short of what Kenwood requires.

It looks like either the autocom is defective, or you have incorrectly wired it. Since both radios work perfefctly well standalone, its only the communicator , ie the Autocom device which seems to be the problem.
Please take a look at this FAQ page for more details..

Hope that helps!
