• To anyone looking to acquire commercial radio programming software:

    Please do not make requests for copies of radio programming software which is sold (or was sold) by the manufacturer for any monetary value. All requests will be deleted and a forum infraction issued. Making a request such as this is attempting to engage in software piracy and this forum cannot be involved or associated with this activity. The same goes for any private transaction via Private Message. Even if you attempt to engage in this activity in PM's we will still enforce the forum rules. Your PM's are not private and the administration has the right to read them if there's a hint to criminal activity.

    If you are having trouble legally obtaining software please state so. We do not want any hurt feelings when your vague post is mistaken for a free request. It is YOUR responsibility to properly word your request.

    To obtain Motorola software see the Sticky in the Motorola forum.

    The various other vendors often permit their dealers to sell the software online (i.e., Kenwood). Please use Google or some other search engine to find a dealer that sells the software. Typically each series or individual radio requires its own software package. Often the Kenwood software is less than $100 so don't be a cheapskate; just purchase it.

    For M/A Com/Harris/GE, etc: there are two software packages that program all current and past radios. One package is for conventional programming and the other for trunked programming. The trunked package is in upwards of $2,500. The conventional package is more reasonable though is still several hundred dollars. The benefit is you do not need multiple versions for each radio (unlike Motorola).

    This is a large and very visible forum. We cannot jeopardize the ability to provide the RadioReference services by allowing this activity to occur. Please respect this.

A buddy of mine handed me his old NMN6191C Lapel Speaker Mic which I intended to ghetto-rig into a simple lapel speaker for my Pro-96 scanner, but it appears i underestimated the complexity of these mics. Rather than having a couple of individual wires inside the thick, coiled cable, there are EIGHT.

So I was hoping somebody knew or knew where to find a color code schematic for the pinouts/individual wires inside the mic.


Red, Orange, Blue, Purple, Green, Yellow, Black, Brown

Duh, they are sonically welded together......
If by sonically welded together you mean literally water/air tight, than yes. I dont think it would be possible to open it. I'm trying to pry it open with a small flat but since they were made to be weather-proof, im not getting anywhere.

I cant believe nobody has ANY information?!!

edit: Pried it open. No help. Its on a circuit board and i cant make heads or tails of which wire leads to the speaker.

Thanks for the 'road map'. From that you can find the two speaker leads and the mic is an electrete type that requires a voltage on the mic to work.

Brown and yellow are the speaker
Red Mic low
Blue Mic hi

Orange PTT

Radio shack made a lapel speaker just for this purpose. It should work fine for any scanner.
