    Why oh why would anyone send this idiot a NOS D104???

    He doesn't know SH!T about them, and once again, just like always, he blames the equipment when he doesn't know something.

    Whoever sent him this mic, you just got scammed.
    I'm sure he told you that he could work on them, and then probably warned you ahead of time about how these mics don't work well, and blah blah blah.

    well guess what! they do work well, and they work well for a long long time IF you know what you are doing with them.

    notice how at about the 3 minute mark he starts complaining about the plastic rod in the neck of the mic and blames over-use for the crappy switching.

    IT'S A NOS MIC YOU BONEHEAD!!!

    the reason for the shoddy switching is because Mr. Hacky doesn't know how to work on these mics at all, but he has no problem taking someone's money.

    there are some things that should be done to a D104 after a while, but i am so tired of this hack taking my free advice to others and using it to make money for himself that i'm going to stop posting it.

    This person did not get the services that should have been done to the mic, and basically wasted their money.

    The only thing worse than this idiot is that there are people out there willing to send their equipment to him.

    To those who have had radios built by ol Snakey:

    I have seen his work personally, and i can tell you two things right away that are messed up in your radio because you chose to have him work on them.

    1. your audio lacks punch because he doesn't know which caps not to mess with when widebanding the mic audio circuit.

    2. your receiver now sucks at picking up weak voices when compared to a stock radio. once again, because he doesn't know which caps not to mess with.

    sure, he can show you how sensitive the receive is, but if you do a test with a stock radio that has been aligned properly with a SINAD meter, you can see right away that while you can pick up the signal, the voice is buried in the noise more than on the stock radio.

    he also doesnt know how to center a radio in the passband during the SSB portion of the alignment process, but that's another story.

    just to put it out there one more time: Snakey learned to align radios from a little write up i did on how to align your own radio using dirt cheap equipment.
    It was never meant to be a "how to" of a professional radio alignment, but he took off running with it and still aligns radios based on the general guidelines i gave back around 2004.
