Here is a quick way to connect the mc-80 kenwood mic to the 706mk2g
you must get the Icom molex to 8 pin adaptor first to make it easier.
- pin 1 white / mic audio
- pin 2 green / 8v+
- pin 3 none
- pin 4 none
- pin 5 black / ptt
- pin 6 and 7 shield and red / must conect together. Those are mic and ptt ground.
- pin 8 none
I wired my mc-80 this way and it sounds great on the 706.
If anyone cares to try to connect the up and down buttons please e-mail me on how you did it. 73
