Well I guess we are all waiting to see if switching the microphone only, will work.

Here are the test conditions.

United Star Radio with U228
Unmodified real military PTT with MBITR connection (U229)
Real Peltor Comtac2 (remove MT21 microphone (Dynamic) and install Element (electret)microphone).

@Socinco, since the link you gave us is a real steal product and we are discussing real steal products being used with the United Star MBITR, I would think it will have the exact same problems.

@Lucky, a Nexus PTT that has been wired how? For a civilian or military headset?

I think it has already been found to work with a civilian headset, so a Nexus PTT wired for a civilian headset should work! But, a Nexus PTT wired for a military headset will not.

Clearly philster911 did not read the thread.

Everyone understands the radio "accepts 6 pin (or 5 pin) military plugs". Thats not the question. Is the NATO plug wired correctly, that is the question. LOL.

Yannos, I hate to be a stickler here....but....

If the mic has impedance issues...as in the transmitted voice is very soft (almost not heard) then it is NOT working correctly. I doubt people will be happy purchasing the radio, using it with a real military PTT and headset and find that people can't hear thier transmissions.

I agree with you that it's CLOSE, but it's not working correctly.

Let's wait until someone takes the real pletor microphone (MT21) off the Comtac2's and replaces it with an Element Comtac2 civilian microphone. This might solve the impedance issue
and increase the volume of the transmission. Then it will be working....

That's what has been said all the way. I am still waiting for a deal for Element comtacs just for the mic to test it.
