I'm planning on wiring mine so the mic's power up with the CB TX switches, just haven't gotten around to it yet, should be a good rainy day project.

Hello all,

I have thought about the wind noise in the headphones of the 1800 intercomm. Has anyone thought about adding a simple normally open momentary push button inline with the microphone feed line? I don't want to re-invent the wheel if it has already failed. I would think that if you would put this switch in the line, the mic would be off all the time. Then, when the driver or passenger wanted to talk, they could simply push the button which would complete the mic line, and talk. While it wouldn't be a perfect fix, it would be cheap and stop the continuous wind noise problem, or at least I think it would. But, like I said, the simplest does not always work...

Thanks:)

Would you be so kind as to send me the pin out for the cords?

Thanks.

Hi CHopin114... I'm trying to fix my problem without too much added technology. I believe that the J&M adapter does just that, breaks the microphone circuit for the intercom. I'm leaning towards putting the switch in the hot lead for the mic as opposed to the ground. I'm thinking this would maybe help prevent any sort of ground fault or ground loop problems. Small PTT switch maybe mounted somewhere on the right side of the passenger seat so the boss can reach it. Trying to find some Momentary Normally Open Waterproof switches, and go from there. One of the forum members sent me a pin out for the headphone connector, so will probably just go under the seat and make the cut in the line there. But, as always, I'm open to another way of thinking....
