Default V6 issues

Larry, if the coax connections and antenna are good (might try using a handheld at 5 watts through the V6 coax to its antenna and TX to another radio) for a TX test, and recieve is clear it's either a Mic issue or a V6 radio issue.

If you would like when I get back from Oshkosh I'll send you a V6 test radio complete wiring harness that you can plug into back of the radio, then use your or any standard headset and just provide temporary power to it. This way you can do some more troubleshooting to separate radio from A/C wiring.

Just let me know.

Default Check your jack fiber washers

I had a similar issue a few years ago, mine was caused by an backwards fiber washer on the mic jack itself in the panel, on the ground everything transmitted fine but when the engine was vibrating I suspect the mic jack was grounding itself to the panel. If I remember correctly, one of the washers from MGL had a lip on one side to center it in the hole and the other side is flat.

I'm no expert and it has been a while, so my memory may be wrong, but that worked for me. Since then I have been very happy with it. Good luck.
