I have a Kenwood TK-805D commercial radio, which I am using for UHF ham operation.
For repeater usage, with AllStar, IRLP, and Echolink, I need a DTMF mic for it.
I did a search on the internet, and found this pinout:
The diagram claims that the radio has an 8v potential at pin 1, but I measured 12 instead.
This link displays a confusion between knowing if it is 12v or 8v output, and says from different sources, mixed data is shown.
I am looking at a particular DTMF mic found on eBay, which claims it works on 6-pin Radios, but doesn't have the TK-805 on the list. Weirdly, it has the TK-760 on the list, which is on the pinout diagram above.
Would the mic above work? If not, is there any other mics at a reasonable price that would work, if not, I have some adjustable voltage regulators that I could calibrate for 8 volts, and solder it in at the 12v pin. Would one of those work?
