    Newbee w/ D-104 T-UG9 Question

    Glad your Tech got it figured out. One wouldn't immediately suspect the PTT Contacts having corrosion for a new mic. Hope you enjoy using it and are able to keep the finish pristine.

    help with hiss/static

    Many newer rigs do this too - similar. Have witnessed several Galaxy Mobiles with Freq. Counters and Illuminated Faceplates emit an audible hum through the external speaker when you turn the volume down. With volume up, the regular received audio covers up the noise. Cheap circuit design - lack...

    Abbree Tacticool 42.5" Flexible Tape Dual-Band HT Antenna SMA Male

    Saw these and thought I would try. I previously did not have a LONG dual-band HT Antenna. For VHF I use the awesome 52" Diamond RH-205 metal telescopic when I need extra range .... but it only covers VHF. The only other better-than-ducky dual band ant. I had is a flexible 18" unit .... which...

    Question on FRS versus GMRS....

    Slight Correction - FM doesn't do PEP, they're just straight carrier level. No "swing"

    Newbee w/ D-104 T-UG9 Question

    Oh yeah and there's other thing - lol. The 9 volt battery caps are cheap and are notorious for one of the wires coming loose under the vinyl sheathing. We're sure you installed a new battery right ? - With a good battery connected, follow the Red & Black wires over to the terminal strip and...

    Newbee w/ D-104 T-UG9 Question

    Another thing you could try, is wire it up 4 Pin Style to a 4 Pin Plug and then use a 4 Pin Mic to 5 Pin Radio Adapter. This will put Blue & Shield together and that could make a difference.

    Newbee w/ D-104 T-UG9 Question

    Hi AB ..... Never Enough Coffee. Okay ..... I see in your post above my last one that you have the wiring pattern and it's not working. Now the mic is suspect. - Rewire the Gold Boy to another radio - whatever else you have around and see if it's working on other radios. If it doesn't work on...

    Newbee w/ D-104 T-UG9 Question

    Hi AB, My bad. Saw the 2000 all along but thought I saw you above saying it was a 4pin. I never owned one so I didn't know. Here ya go: 6 Wire Astatic to 5 Pin Cobra 1) White 2) Shield 3) Black 4) Blue 5) Red yellow NC

    Newbee w/ D-104 T-UG9 Question

    It is simply this: 1) Blue & Shield 2) White 3) Red 4) Black Yellow No Connection . Don't change anything else. I have never seen a case where a Lolipop ever needed any internal modifications to work on a radio. Only a "Switch To R" on older Relay-Keyed radios with a TUG-8, and then determine...

    Newbee w/ D-104 T-UG9 Question

    I used to work with the D104's daily. Refurbished them and specialized in making from scratch and installing the Tweety Bird Noise Toys. From memory on the 6 Wires - the Blue needs to go with Shield and Yellow is No Connection. I have never seen a White & Shield connection and I have never seen...

    Fresh Hell In The Woods

    Fortunately we only have 2 venomous types here, these and Copperheads. We're too far north for the Water Moccasins, Eastern and Pygmy Corals. Learned to I.D. all state snakes when we moved here. Good that the TR's & Coppers are so distinctively marked and nothing else looks like them.

    Fresh Hell In The Woods

    We live completely in the woods inside the Nat. Forest. Wouldn't trade the place for anything but it has it's moments. Just got through disposing of this very large adult Timber Rattler right up against the house. Just glad I saw it before the dog did. The wife's family has had one family dog...

    NO YOU CAN'T. Not unless they they stated it is Working As Should in the ad. If they make no operational claims on the rig, then there is nothing to make a claim on.

    Proposed New Rule For The Swap Shop Forums

    How about Only Posts for items (YOU) have for sale yourself or a local friend without internet access. No more "hey I saw this on Craigslist and thought you might like it" stuff. No Links that take you away from this site to see an ad somewhere else - that will have no accountability to this place.
