Accessories on order

I've ordered a spare V/UHF antenna and a speaker mic from Deal Extreme (TG-UV2 referral).

I'll wait until I receive these items, and I'll make sure that they actually work with the TG-UV2, before posting the details. Hopefully that will be within the next week or two.

Update - The order has been shipped. Delivery usually less than two weeks to my location.


  1. Do you know what the pinouts are for the speaker-mic jacks?

  2. I've not yet confirmed what the speaker-mic pin-out might be, but I saw a mention that the interface was supposed to be a copy of Kenwood/Trio. But I've not confirmed this yet. Once I get my speaker-mic from Deal Extreme and after I make sure it works, then I'll post the details.

    Here's a good link for mic and speaker-mic wiring (in general):

    It has no mention of QuanSheng, but once I confirm it's the same as Kenwood, then that website will help.

    So standby. My order is on the way...

  3. Thanks for that. I got ahold of a Kenwood TH-F6A manual (online) and there is a nice diagram of how the speaker-mic is wired. I experimented and am pretty sure the Quansheng corresponds to it. I will try to pick up a speaker-mic at an upcoming hamfest.

  4. it's the kenwood thingie, i've ordered 2 mics from dealextreme aswell, and they work :)

  5. Niels, which SKU (item number) did you order from DealExtreme?

    These are the items I've ordered, but they've not yet arrived. They should be here any day now. I cannot YET vouch that these work with the TG-UV2, but soon.

    SKU=14769, 3.5mm+2.5mm Clip-on Microphone for Kenwood Walkie Talkies (1.5-Meter Cable), US$5.85

    SKU=14942, Replacement Antenna for Kenwood and More Walkie Talkies (144~430MHz 10W Max), US$4.69

    The only reason I ordered the antenna was because it's so cheap, and to confirm that the connector is industry standard. The included antenna works to my satisfaction.

  6. I've posted about these two items. The Speaker Mic (14769) works great. The antenna arrived with an incorrect connector, but Deal Extreme is supposed to be sending a replacement. See posts for details.
