Linc mk 1 mic n power lead

Post by original45 » 23 May 2018, 15:15

I'm looking to buy a spare power lead for the Linc mk 1 , are all the leads the same or is it best to buy a heavy duty type as I think I found a 10 amp one on fleebay but then the other doesn't say what amp it is .

Next I'm in need of a Mic to use on it ,just a hand mic . Not sure if I need a power mic as yet but welcome your recommendations on a decent mic.
And what Other radio mica will be wired same please in case I can find a used mic.

Thank you

The MK1 Lincoln doesn't draw that many amps. You can happily run them on a 7A PSU and neither the radio or supply will complain. Saying that, it would be best to buy a good quality power lead which is above and beyond the requirements of the radio. So the 10A lead would be a safe bet.

Far too many radio's to list here. But I do own a legal one...

I'm making my own power cables . I've used 7A cable , which will be more than enough . The manual lists it at 4.5A max consumption .

Amps , I had no idea that a 7 amp would suffice and that draw was only 4,5amp give or take.

Thank you for the extra information ,that's brilliant.
I will order from the suggested supplier soon as.

Mic wise I believe I am also now sorted with a m75 power mic which is wired for the radio from a helpfull forum member.

I would still like to locate a none power mic too as a spare but have found it not a easy mic to buy pre wired for the radio .
Would it be a difficult 're wire from a cobra uniden type 5pin plug to suit the radio.

Thank you for your advices.

Looks simple enough . Pin 1 = Audio . Pin 2 = Shield . Pin 3 = TX

Yes , it may be a very simple thing to many and I have rewired a couple of mic plugs years back ,1 more recently but confidence and asking for confirmation occasionally of the correct detail is my downfall.
I am extremely greatful to the forum users that have always helped in all my past posts.

A little candle to light my way is sometimes all it needs.
Thank you everyone once again for all your help past and present

There's absolutely nothing wrong with asking questions or getting confirmation. If you don't ask you don't learn. Also threads like this often help other members, so it's actually a good thing that questions like yours here are asked and answered.

We all get stuck sometimes, even on the simplest of things...
