I need to replace a mike and curly cord to the above base station.
The existing Maxon 4474 mike has passed its prime - can I use an Altronics mike such as their co335 or co 333 if so how does it connect (pinouts) if not do you have any suggestions??

Re: Replacement Mike for a Maxon SM 4450.sd
Mike the only suggestion I can giv you is to contact Maxon or a local dealer asn ask for replacement parts. The radio shop I work for does not carry maxon or Altronics parts. I only have Motorola and Kenwood commercial radio parts.

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.
Hello susannebrown. There is a problem with the base station or repeater station. If your mobiles can communicate ok, you have problem with the base, check the antenna & coax connections. #2 Swap out a mobile with the base & test operation. If you can do this & found the culprate care it to the repair shop(less cost). #3 Swap has no effect or you can't, you have a repeater problem. Sorry, call a repair shop.
The Maxon SL100 can be programmed but doing so requires a programming kit including software and a specialized cable. Unless you are going to be reprogramming a lot of units regularly, you are going to be best served by taking the unit into your local Maxon dealer and paying them to reprogram it for you.
Don, this site might get you some more info into your radio. Seems it's a cousin to a GE brand. Down towards the bottom is a few links that might be what your looking for,,, http://www.qsl.net/w4xe/new_page_4.htm
I'm not sure about your particular model but many CB radios use the microphone push-to-talk switch to kill the speaker while the radio is transmitting. If you don't have the correct microphone or if the cord has a broken wire it can cause the radio to have no sound. Another possibility is that the speaker is bad. There is probably an external speaker jack on the back of the radio. You could try plugging a different speaker or even an earphone in the jack to see if you get sound there.
