Does anybody happen to know where to find a switch like this one?
Monentary on or off? Did you try Mouser electronics?
It's a momentary on double pole double throw but I haven't checked Mouser yet
This guy will sell you two of them for $13.50 including shipping.
And it's a 4-pole double-throw switch.
Does anyone know where to get this switch now days?
Thanks for the link. I just got one of these mics and the button is so hard to push that I thought it was broken. I push it in like normal and the radio keys but no audio. I double checked the battery and looked over the PCB; everything looked ok. Then I figured out that I was only pushing the button in half way. I need to pop the cover off again to see if something else is making it hard to push. I will probably change the switch anyway just because.
Is this the same switch, or a better version?
I'm about 99% sure it's a better switch than the original.
You would have to say that.
Okay, mine are ordered.
I hope so. Just ordered them
How many watt soldering iron will I need to do this ,75watt ?
I have a soldering gun that I use. Threw away the new iron I had because it wouldn't heat the wires enough to melt the solder when I was rewiring my car.
The other iron is big, and I used it on brass and piano wire when I was building slot cars.
You're having problems with the mic also?
I took mine apart, changed the battery and cleaned the switch after about a month. Was told it was scratch sounding. Better after I cleaned it, now back to being crappy. I've only had it 3 months.
It ain’t what it oughta be. Same start as yours.
All of the new Astatic microphones are complete junk. They are not the same as the old ones, not the same company, just the name only. The switch will fail and always make a terrible scratchy noise. I'd say to buy an RF limited xtreme 2018 microphone, however they are not being made any longer and hard to come by. Best microphone ever!
