Great band cooperation with a "Self Mic Hit In The Face" ... LOL...



In 1971 I became a Ham radio Operator... Built my first Kit Radio in 1965 while

 in Military School...  


U Stream is up and operational... You can check the S-Meter level of your signal and listen

 to your own audio... Anywhere from 2 to 20 second delay...

The Heil PR-781 is a balanced MIC. Outstanding with the FT-950...

 I bought a new FT-950 in 2009...  

After Jim,  ( www.K6JRF.Com) on "3825KHz" fetched me up on some audio settings,

I can now hear paper crumbling in my monitor headset. My Mic cable was wired wrong...

Jim stated I had HUM...

 Thank You Bob Heil for a Magnificent Mic for the FT-950!

I had bought (wrong one) a Yellow End Cap type cable. At that time there was no Orange

 End Cap (Balanced Mic Cable)  Mic Cable...  RF hum ended up being in the microphone connections...

Mine was wired with Mic low (Not Balanced) at chassis ground. A short between mic low and shield in both ends of the cable.

This is very important if you’re using a Heil PR-781 MIC with the FT-950. A balanced mic input radio. HEIL sells the correct cable.

It has an Orange end cap on the cable at the mic side.

On the HEIL MIC Side...

HEIL MIC High (white wire) should be XLR pin 2. Yaesu Pin 8...

HEIL Mic Low the black wire from XLR pin 3, goes to Yaesu pin 7.

HEIL Mic Shield from the microphone XLR pin 1. Yaesu pin 5.

And you know the 2 PTT wires. Yaesu pins 5&6. 5 is chassis ground and 6 is ptt key.

Have no other wires touching or any jumpers from wire to wire or connectors. 3 wires for the audio and 2 separate wires for PTT. Also make sure the Microphone connector on the MIC has NO Jumpers from any pin to pin inside the connector...

If you have a problem with HEIL PR-781 PTT switch you can buy a new switch at radio shack. It has a RED push Button and fits fine in the HEIL base.

Remote Microphone: Radio Shack Part Number 32-1258... A 170 MHz single channel wireless microphone system 600 ohms.

The receiver of Microphone has 2 outputs. A high output (0-70 mill volts) The RCA plug... The other is low output with the 1/4 inch phone plug (0-10 Mill volts)... I use the 10 mill volt output. I leave the level output "VOLUME" all the way to max clockwise for 10 Mill volts and the squelch knob fully counter clockwise... On a FT-950 with a HEIL PR-781 you don't even need to touch the Mic gain... Perfect!!!

The center pin of 1/4 inch mono plug is used as MIC HIGH... This is XLR pin 2 of Mic Cable which is Pin 8 of Yaesu radio...

The shield of 1/4 inch phone plug is used as MIC LOW... This is XLR pin 3...

Voice EQ Settings. I don't use the audio processor a lot. I sound clearer with EQ only. If you turn on the processor than try it with setting of 10.For me to much over drive beyond 25.

My settings for the "Processor EQ", so when engaged, are the exact same settings as the EQ. I set both the Audio EQ and the Processor settings as per the different menu item numbers. Here are my settings:

For The Audio EQ:

  • Menu 064 (1-30)... late night 80 meter rag chew. (2-28).. 40 meters and DX)
  • Menu 091 (100)
  • Menu 092 (-5)
  • Menu 093 (1)
  • Menu 094 (1000)
  • Menu 095 (7)
  • Menu 096 (1)
  • Menu 097 (2700)
  • Menu 098 (10)
  • Menu 099 (2)

For the Audio Processor Compression:

  • Menu 100 (100)
  • Menu 101 (-5)
  • Menu 102 (1)
  • Menu 103 (1000)
  • Menu 104 (7)
  • Menu 105 (1)
  • Menu 106 (2700)
  • Menu 107 (10)
  • Menu 108 (2)

Processor Compression Drive Level: Menu 109 (Level 10). Some people crank this to the limit...

I'm getting strong action at level 10... I leave mine set at 10... This gives my station about 8db of average compression...

MIC level: on front of the radio... Mine is set at 29... Some say I should have it at 23 but I have it at 29!!!!

RX Audio EQ Contour Filter: I set mine on the + side by Menu 069 (RGEN CNTR LV) at a +10. Menu 070 (CNTR WI) at a +10. Not as the Default setting -15. This changes the Cont Display to have a peak. I then set my Cont, with the push button (above the select knob) and rotate the select knob to 2200 Hz. I than set my Notch, with the push button (above the select knob) and rotate the select knob to 700 Hz. These actions make my radio (in my ears) sound more Alive. NOTE: Menu 071 and 072 must be on. I set a value of 3 in menu item072.

Using built in Keyer for Amp Tune: Menu 043 set to (SEMI) instead of full break in...

The key input on back of radio is stereo 1/4 jack. I bought adapter 1/4 inch stereo with female RCA left and right...

I use a straight key. The "dit" instead of the "dah"... That’s either left or right RCA connector.

!!!Than turn on the keyer. I set speed at 30 wpm on front knob of 950.... Use direct instead

of offset (047) and 700 Hz pitch (045)...

This allows pulsing the amp in tune rather than hitting it with solid 700 Hz tone...

 Our good buddy Moody Law "WQ6I" explaining the Future Of Ham Radio...




I found a public high flight... Good place for a 2 meter repeater...  http://www.wimp.com/breathtakingfootage/


 Another kwel Hobby besides radios....



 I like to hear stories on Ham Radio... Electronics or History or Economics or

 Earth Science or Music or Air Planes or anything... I like to listen and learn...


 All hams being in a international art, have at times listened to many different political views...

 I try not to be political...


 Everybody seem's to have their own political and religious views...

 I try to stay Neutral...


I am an American who love's "Basic American Values" of proper play after

 work: Baseball, Chevy's and Apple Pie...


I've listened to so many different political views and I THINK most involve

 either how a country or culture Uses Money and Who own's the land...


73 Brothers and Sisters... Hope to HEAR YOU...

 Gregory, K7ZAR
