Many VHF and UHF mobile operators use a “handie-talkie” type radio connected to a normal mobile antenna in their vehicles. One of the most common accessories purchased with this type of radio is a “speaker mic.”

While a speaker mic helps, it may be even more helpful to use the external speaker connection that is on the speaker mic you have now as shown on the Icom speaker mic to the right.

External Speaker

Options for a smaller budget

If you have a smaller budget, there are other options.

There are a few options you might consider to improve your mobile system. If you’d like more info or other suggestions, contact DX Engineering online or by phone at 800-777-0703.
