No mikegain

Gerd Eggert

Hi,

today I have lost the mikegain. The control is set to 30, powerlevel ist
set to 50. In a controlreceiver nearby I can only hear a "click". When I
switch "Vox ON" Vox is not working, When I turn the "Mon" Level On then
there is no Audio comming out of the speaker.

Any idea ?

Could be a wrong Mic Bias setting.

Gerd,

You did not say which microphone you are using.  An electret microphone
needs bias turned on, dynamic microphones do not.
Did it work before?  If so, what settings may have been changed.

Do not overlook the microphone itself.  Does it work on another
transceiver?  Does another microphone work on the K3?
If you have a variety of microphones, *most* Kenwood microphones are
dynamic type and will work with the K3 (bias off).  Elecraft microphones
need bias turned on.  Other microphones may or may not have the correct
mic plug pinout to work with the K3.
Heil microphones are a mix of dynamic and electret types, and must have
a Kenwood adapter to work with the K3 (all Heil microphones are not the
same, one must specify the complete model/type).

73,
Don W3FPR
