Re: ubitx 2.0 - Mic cannot get to TX

Just by pure happenstance, I plugged my KX2 mic into the 1/8" jack that comes with the cabinet kit, and it works like a charm. The up/down buttons don't work, but the PTT and audio are fine.

All sorted out. my goodness.
Here goes for those wanting to use Baofeng. First there are tonnes of 'Baofeng' knockoffs. Now, i dropped out the wiring and replaced it using a ethernet cable which a roll was laying around. The wiring in these units is attrocious and cannot be used.
1. Stereo 3.5 is required - not mono
2. Drop the wiring and cable out and replace with ethernet cable.
3. replace the baofeng electret with ubitx electret; drill larger whole. two wiring is straight forward.
A B C

On the board it will be marked M, M- and PTT.
M will go to C.
M-- will go to A
PTT will go to B
Power out is very low and one needs to shout much into it. By removing the speaker i should be able to get the audio amp in to improve drive.
