Is it possible to kill the forced talk back feature on the Road Devil RD104E power mics?
None of the radios which I own have a t.b. feature but this mic forces it no matter the power level & with it, horrible squeal if the power is beyond 1-2.
Hopefully there's a potentiometer inside to dial it all the way back, this is driving me nuts.
Trying to use the p.a. function with this is an exercise in futility. When doing so it must have cooked something on my garbage unidens (880 & 980) as turning on the p.a. now transmits the whatever is being received over the radio.
I triple checked the jacks & the p.a. is in the correct outlet. To stop this, the squelch has to be on 100% & no external speaker can be plugged in as it will pick up the forced t.b. over that, making feedback like nails on a chalkboard. This even occurs on older Cobras & *GASP* Galaxy radios as well.
Any ideas on a remedy?
I've tried another cheapo power mic (possibly Workman, just has a silver "power mic" emblem. No other info present) but get a similar issue.
Never had this problem with my Turner +3 but that's long gone & any currently on the market have been "clipped" at the connector yet still command an insane premium....which no one is paying but the same listings remain.
I need a power mic as standard/noise cancelling require shouting on my behalf to be heard on the airways.
Not exactly a fan of doing that, especially when there's no background noise present necessitating it.
Really kills your throat if you plan on talking for any period beyond a couple seconds.
