Hello rikirsch,

For replacement microphones for the Ray 215 DSC you can contact the manufacturer via their website http://www.raymarine.com. It appears there are two different versions available, a traditional style handheld microphone and a multi-function handset style mic.

Hope this helps!

I have the same problem - the cord to my fist mic on the Ray 215 is falling apart. I don't need a new mic; just a cord. Official site ask $47 just for the new cord plus shipping plus tax. If anybody knows a site with more reasonable price?

How do I wire a microphone?


More information please. Re wire existing? Hand mic or desk style? It is often cheaper to buy a new one when you look at the time to do it well. Sometimes you can buy a mic cord and re solder the head to it.

Trying to determine the cause of intermittent signal from microphone on a vx 4600 radio


Yes, short or lack of a good ground. It could also be the cord attached to the mic. The mic itself should provide the needed feedback to the radio that a mic is plugged in. Do you have anything connected to the accessory jack in the back of the radio? That can cause the same issue.

Ray 215 DSC VHF microphone


Hi Ralph,

Not to sure, but I take it that you are looking for a microphone for the Ray 215 DSC VHF Marine radio, is this correct?

If so, then you could do one of the following: go to your nearest 2-way radio repair shop, as they always have spare parts and could find a suitable match for your radio, search the web or log onto ebay, apart from that, I couldn't suggest anything more. I hope that I understood your query, as it was a little short on detail.

Wishing you well and best regards from the FixYa team.

Cheers,
Peter

Motorola cp200 attached microphone will send but will not recieve


Assuming you have the correct mic for the radio (HMN9030 or PMNN4013). It is possible
1) you have accidentally plugged the mic into the radio with the radio turned on, (this will cause the radio to receive but not transmit. It can simulate VOX.)
2) you have a bad audio accessory jack,
3) you do not have the mic plugged all the way in (you will feel a slight click when the mic is seated properly)
4) you have a bad mic or bad mic cord.

Possible solutions:
1) With the radio turned off, replug in your mic (feel for the click), then turn your radio on, and see if it works.
2) Try a known good mic from another unit.
3) If none of the above solve the problem, send your radio along with the mic to a repair facility and have the jack tested. (FYI: Flat rate repair on this style radio is currently around $85. Cord replacement on the mics can average $27 to $38.)

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.

I dont know what kind of radio i have


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.

Pls post back result(s). Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

No transmitting with Raymarine Ray45VHF


Hi,

Re your queries:
1. how to memorize channels?
The channels are pre-programmed that a channel number corresponds to a frequency setting. Ex. Ch16 is 156.800 . If for some reasons some channels are missing, perhaps your best course of action is to reset the unit to factory default, that way everything would be back to  normal. Master reset is performed by pressing the 16PLUS button while powering the radio. The LCD will display "CL" indicating that the memory has been cleared.
If you  want to memorize a certain channel/frequency, you can only store it as a replacement for 16PLUS assignment. Ex. Instead of Ch16 as your priority/emergency channel you want say Ch14 (156.700), you can do this by pressing the up/down key till your desired channel; press & hold the 16PLUS key for 3 seconds or until you hear the confirmation beep that your desired channel has been memorized in the memory as the new 16PLUS.

2. Why I cannot transmit?
There could be 2 possible reasons:
2.1 You are transmitting on a channel that has been assigned as receive only. Examples are the weather channels, Channels 1,2,3,  also 70,75,76, and possibly others.
2.2 Your TX module/circuitry has a problem. More often it is the finals that gets burned.

3. When i use the PTT Channel 16 is automatically set ?
The mic has an identical 16PLUS button (similar to the radio's front panel). If you pressed the PTT switch on the side and the radio switches to Ch16 (as if you pressed the 16PLUS button on the front) then you have a wiring problem from the mic to the radio. Possibly a shorted or open connection.  It is also possible that you have a break in the small PCB (in some versions) inside the microphone.

The user's manual can provide a more detailed instruction.  It is available at the RayMarine website and the link is >
http://www.raymarine.com/SubmittedFiles/Handbooks/Legacy_Handbooks/communications/RAY45MANUAL.pdf

Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back how things turns up or should you need further information.

Good luck and kind regards.
