    I know nothing about that mic, but the TB-1 should have 3 wires.....red, black, and white. It seems you have the white audio wire crossed up.

    yes you are right and right now it only works when I push the red button, just trying to see how to get it to work on key up.

    solder two more wires on to the little switch, and run one wire to the TX wire inside the mic, and the other to the shield wire inside the mic.

    then the switch will be "closed" whenever you key the mic, or when you push the button.

    the mic will be useless for anything other than tweety birding though, as it will make noise the whole time the mic is keyed.

    if you want it to just tweet for a second, thats a new circuit you'll need to add.

    I tried installing a switch to make it a "key-up" effect but i couldnt get it just right, so i ended up just scrapping the switch idea and just hit the button when i keyed the mic. I like the Tweety's pot. option to lay the hammer on troublemakers.
