Re: {Collins} Mic Plugs



I second that. I bought some from Mouser a few weeks ago and have been
very happy with them -- although a little pricier at Mouser they do have
the red ones.

When I tried to check into the 3805 net last week I couldn't key the
KWM-2A.
I wiggled the mic connector around and it worked but I had to hold it in
place so I benched the rig and mic.
I found that the el-cheapo mic plug had an intermittent internal
contact. 
I rummaged around in the junque bin without finding anything.

The next day I was on the phone with Jim KJ6EPD and I mentioned the mic
plug.
He suggested I take a look at the Neutrik series of connectors.
I found them at Markertek. http://www.markertek.com/
The part number is NP3CM-B

The link is long and will wrap around so add the second line to your
browser.

I just received a handful of them and they are the highest quality and
easy
to assemble.
Look here for the instructions.

Click the NP3TM link.

They are the correct .206 o/d 'stereo' size to fit Collins and Drake.

I also got some new Heil mic cable from R&L electronics.
