Amplified Microphone Service Tips

      The ASTATIC D104-M6 "power" microphone sometimes comes with a bit of a "click" feeling when you push button all the way in. This can be fixed by carving the area shown below with an exacto blade or similar razor. The side and bottom are both carved using the blade and "shaving" a little at a time.
Before After



     There has been a lot of people who break the volume adjustment knob shaft running to the control inside. After you replace the battery, when you place the mic together, look carefully at how the case wants to squeeze the knob, move it down slightly with your finger tip while closing so that it doesn't put pressure on the shaft and break it free of the control. It will then have a broken snap and never go back in
.

 

This microphones PTT switch is unusually susceptible to damage when dropping the mic on the PTT button.  It will develop a scratchy sound that cleaning only cures for a day or less. After this happens a new switch will be required.  This is very difficult and will require technical assistance. Bells CB will replace the switch for $15 parts and labor.

The item most overlooked when ordering a custom radio is the microphone.  Your new tuned radio will NOT
sound great  with a stock mic on it  If your CB is more than a tool for work, you NEED to upgrade your microphone. 
My personal favorites are the Astatic 636L and RD104E.

If you place an order from outside the continental USA, we will calculate your actual shipping and send you a PayPal payment request.  We do NOT export Antennas or Base station radios.
