Re: Mike element

Thanks for the reply.  I was wondering if there was a generic problem with elements
used in the Baofeng microphones, or if yours was an anomaly?  May have to order
one just so I can test it.

Measuring the electret microphone output in typical BITX radio circuits seems to
indicate that most elements from on-line dealers put out around 45 millivolts as
measured with an oscilloscope.  Of course this will vary with circuit changes and
with different loading factors.

I didn't measure the output before replacing the element.
I compared it to a microphone from a GE commercial radio and it was much lower with the original, now the audio sounds very close.
