Good Evening Folks,

I recently purchased a Mobilinkd bluetooth kiss TNC to use with my Baofeng radio for APRS (for now) and I have realized that the RX / TX on that radio is rather poor.

So, I was wondering if there was anything at there that I could connect to my Motorola HT1000 or XTS5000 that would let me connect my Baofeng / Kenwood cable to for RX / PTT.

I bought an adapter that I thought would do the trick but it turned out to be an M3 - Motorola 2 pin adapter so the pins were too close together.

If something like this doesn't exist, could I simply take apart a Jedi mic and wire something up that way?

Thanks in advance.

If I understand it, he's looking for a cable to allow him to connect his tnc to his Motorola radio.

A speaker mic should have the proper connections.

Yep, that is correct. Sorry for the confusing post. The TNC I have has a K-plug on one end (for Baofeng and Kenwood ham radios) and a 4 pole 3.5mm audio connector on one end (like a smartphone headphone connector).

What I was hoping to find was an adapter that I just pop on the Mototola Radio with the M3 style connector (like the Jedi style shoulder mic) that would allow me to connect my tnc cable to without having to make a cable.
