    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

I recently purchased a Speaker Microphone for MOTOROLA 2 Pin - C1SM. Will this work as a lapel speaker for my pro 106 if i just leave the 3.5 mm jack?
It will work but you will need to cut the smaller plug. I have the Radioshack Speaker/mic. that I had to cut the smaller plug, so that the larger one can go into the hole.

Anything that will cut it off :)

I would use just a heavy pair of wire cutters... Dremel or a small hacksaw would also do it. Might be able to just wiggle it back and forth and eventually pull it out with a pair of pliers as well. Not very elegant by any stretch of the imagination but would likely work.

Alternatively you could cut the entire plug off and solder on a new 1/8" (3.5mm) mono plug in it's place, just leave the mic wires disconnected. This would look much nicer, and the smaller plug will reduce stress on the jack.

P.S. If you don't want to modify the speaker/mic's factory plug, then you could simply use a [short] 1/8" extension cable as well.
