VX-8 ext. mic wiring, impedance and condensors??


Jun 10, 2011
I recently purchased a used VX8R, and I need to convert some military headsets to work with it.

I got the pin-out stuff fromt the other thread, so that's great. I'm having issues with figuring out which microphones to usethough. Some sound really really low, while others don't work at all.

Does anybody know which impedance and type of mic i need to buy to get this to work?

Do any other components (like capacitors, resistors or diodes) need to be installed? A friend did a mod with a mic with what appears to be a diode acress the terminals, and that works?! I'm really tired of this blind trial and error stuff :confused:
