Using the passing switch as the PTT on our comms...
We have Midland two-way radios with AVPH2 closed face speaker/mic systems. The system works very well in general. PTT switch is mounted on the left mirror.
I've taken both bikes (wife has a DL650, I have a DL1000) left controls apart and re-purposed the passing switches to act as PTT switches for the comms. The problem is they don't work.
Upon close examination I noticed a very small chip, either a resistor or a diode, on the Midland PTT switch. Is this chip (or the lack of it) my problem? When I key the mike the circuit opens and transmits, but only open air...there's no sound from the mic.
Has anyone else done this mod successfully?
