Re: Noob tx problem #ubitx-help
I just wanted to update this post so that another noob isn't lead astray.
I've finally got my dummy load put together so that I could more thoroughly test the mic and transceiver and it turns out that all was not well. On more testing, when I whistled into the mic I would get a relay clicking on and off rapidly. The problem is that I was wiring the mic and switch together in a simple series circuit. This is incorrect. What got me started down the wrong path was that the plug sent with the kit was a mono plug. Ubitx.net has a diagram showing the mic hookup....I couldn't figure out why this diagram didn't make sense to me until I realized it was for a stereo plug.
I went and bought a stereo plug, wired it up and all is now well.
See the diagram here: https://ubitx.net/wiring-up-the-mic-jack/
I know this is simple stuff for most of you guys, but I didn't want to leave this thread hanging around with my incorrect conclusion.
