I picked up a Radio Shack HT mike last night, with the intent of
mod'ing it for the QRP+.
I clipped the dual plug and put on the 1/8" stereo plug. I
clipped the speaker and the components, and wired the two-prong
condenser element (low impedence) and switch as described in the
manual: tip - ptt, center - mike +, barrel - ground.
Popped it in, keyed the mike, and the RF/S-meter pop's up to max
(not pegged, but max). When keyed, it stays there regardless of
the voice input, or the carrier level on the back.
I also tried a Radio Shack three prong element to no avail...
same problem. I've checked for shorts in the mike, and at the
plug... looks clean.
Can anyone think of anything stupid I might of done, before I
call Index. I've run CW since I got the rig, so I have never
confirmed that SSB even works.
Direct mail is preferred, to save bandwidth.
