Source for uBITX V6 Full Kit Supplied Microphone

Dennis Zabawa
 

Does anyone have a source for the microphone supplied with the uBITX V6 full kit?  I would like to obtain a couple for some other projects.  I have searched the net and could not find a mike like that with the TRS plug.

We just snip off the original twonpin plug and solder a stereo jack in its place.

Dennis,

I found a number of them on Amazon.  You may do better on ebay.

Search for a "baofeng radio mic"

As Farhan stated above, you will need to cut off the 2 jack plug and wire in a TRS connector with the tip being the mic, and the ring being the PTT switch and the sleeve being ground. 

FWIW

I'm puzzled by - the TRS plug --. What sort of special connector is this ???

Peter LB0K,

TRS is an acronym for Tip Ring Sleeve, reference to the 3.5 mm plug that is common for cell phones and portable audio equipment.  The only caution is that the most common for cell phones is actually a Tip Ring Ring Sleeve (TRRS) as there are 2 rings on the plug to allow for stereo headphones and a microphone.

Here is a part on Amazon that should work:

Note that there is a TRRS selection on the page as well as the TRS.

Hope this helps.

Hi I found the Mic's hear
https://www.amazon.co.uk/Baofeng-Speaker-Compatible-BF-888S-Transceiver-Black/dp/B01K1TO2DU/ref=sr_1_8?crid=Z1OW2XBSXE20&keywords=cb+mic&qid=1582902084&sprefix=%2Caps%2C152&sr=8-8

Mine was faulty the the mic capsule had broken the track away on the PCB in the mic. I still get very little rf out of the radio on ssb CW's fine I just need to make my own mic to get mine going on TX.

I have one(I will not use it) for my Boefeg HT. Everyone says the audio quality is bad. I  instead am using one that is made for and had the Kenwood brand The audio is good.

I guess it is time for some solder smoke.  TNX for the response Ashhar!
