Quote from: Duffy on August 10, 2017, 09:01:33 AMThe microphone that I bought off eBay arrived this morning . . . It is in better shape then I thought it would be. It even has the right adapter for the phone and the colour matches.
Quote from: TelePlay on August 10, 2017, 09:10:35 AMThat's fantastic, right color and connector. eBay is funny that way, what you get has a 60/40 chance of being much better or much worse that pictured. With the quality of images posted on eBay these days, most stuff turns out better.Hope it works and can't wait to see your finished project. That will be something few others have in their collections.
Quote from: Duffy on August 10, 2017, 12:33:57 PMOK, I jumped the gun here a little bit. When I opened the package this morning I seen it was gray and thought a perfect match, next was the screw on female adapter type great 2 for 2. The phone was in the garage and I was in the house. When I got around the morning on checking it out, I found that the gray was a little lighter on the mic, I can live with that. But the female adapter was larger than the male one on the phone. Now I'm going to have to find myself a female smaller adapter and swap it out.I gave the mic a good cleaning this morning."These pictures were taken outside in natural sunlight."
Quote from: TelePlay on August 10, 2017, 01:32:39 PMYes, the mic connector looked a bit large but when not next to the phone, hard to tell. At first I thought the phone jack was a female BNC but then the threads were apparent. Maybe DavePEI could find or knows of an adapter to convert the large male to the smaller jack. Radio seems to have any and all types of adapters which could avoid cutting off the original plug.
Quote from: Duffy on August 10, 2017, 04:38:10 PMThanks Alex,I ordered a new female adapter in the right size (mini) from Digi-Key today. I'll replace the larger one and keep my fingers crossed that everything works out.
