Post by 2TM541 »

Image

Amplified desk echo mic with switchable Roger Beep and lighted VU meter.
# Echo Repeating
# Echo Level Control
# Power Control
# Push-To-Talk Lock Switch
# Adjustable Swivel Mic Head
# TX / Battery Indicator LED
# VU Modulation Meter
# Roger Beep With Switch
# Operates On 9 Volt Battery (not included) or external 9 Volt power

I just ordered one of these prewired to replace the stock mic on my RCI 2950DX and add some extra modulation. Thoughts and opinions on this piece of equipment?

Hi,these look just similar to the old Sadelta Echo Master.
They were a good cb mic with a 2 tone beep,it should perk things up a bit for you.

I haven't gotten it yet but this one also has a double roger beep from what I hear. Wonder if they were made by the same company.

Blast from the past revival -

Anyone know what the wiring is for one of these mic's to go on 4 pin Cybernet please? 4 pin Cobra will do too as I can work out the swap-around from that otherwise.

It has red / black / white / screen wire colours (I can't see any others and the cable is thin compared to the usual base mic' cabling).

I've got the colour-coding for the old Sadelta echo mic', but not this modern equivalent.

Thanks :)

At least it is a clone of the older single meter version. I had both and the double meter version of the EM+, and the double meter version was nowhere near as good. Different board inside.

I had a Bravo plus as well which I wish that I had kept.

There is no such thing as a Fidelity 1000 which is too good to scrap.

Aha..I take it there's either a black OR yellow wire then as I couldn't see both without stripping down the covering a bit.

I can hopefully work it out from that then, thanks. I didn't want to go touching things pin-wise in case I break the thing :)


I've had the single-metered Sadelta one myself before and it had the best/clearest sound of any base mic' I've used ...although I've only ever used about a dozen in my life I must admit.

Cheers, I'll get soldering tonight.

You are welcome, hopefully you get the mic up and running.
I have a few desk mics one being the sadelta bravo Pro which in my opinion is garish in black and yellow

I'm surprised it doesn't glow in the dark too ;)



I've already unsoldered the wires from the existing 6-pin mic' plug that was on it, but noted that the red and screen wires were soldered together. I then couldn't find the exact wiring so I turned off the iron.

Now I'm definitely no expert, but I always thought that the screen is only ever soldered to the black wire in power mic's, never the red?

I'm probably wrong as usual though ;)

Hmm I usually go by with the wiring on the ppt switch inside the mic.
And yes black and screen usually Go together

The Galaxy mic's all done, so thanks for the info above. Did you say a little prayer for me, because if you did, it was useless! ;)

I wrote down what the wiring for a Cybernet radio's mic' wiring should be, looking at mynold charts, looked at the colour coding above...and couldn't get it to work! I opened up a Radiomobile mic' that had exactly the same coloured wires and still couldn't get it to work.
By swapping wires around 2 at a time, I eventually got it to TX but with no audio, then after trying again it TX'd as soon as it was plugged in, then tried again and there was no TX at all..grrr.... but just before I gave up I finally sussed the bloody thing out.

I've told you I was crap at this kind of thing before. My soldering isn't bad in itself, it's just that I need to be sat down like a Neanderthal, given clear, idiot-proof written instructions, drawn with big crayons on exactly which wire goes onto which connection :lol:

Glad you got sorted, it's a bummer when wiring codes don't work.
Even if they are in bold crayon colours
