i  stupidly ordered the wrong  lead for my Heil PR-781  to work with my 6300 :(

i ordered the kenwood one Heil CC-1-K8  i  should have got the Heil CC-1-Y8 ..

so, yes i could exchange it but that would take  2 or 3 days, could i just rewire it for yaesu ( flex) ??

i think there's a couple of resistors in the cuircut, but not sure?

cheers rob

You actually want the CC-1-XLR-Y-BAL cable. You will find the Yellow cable is now replaced with a correctly wired cable that provides a balanced input to the front connector on the Flex 6000 series radios. The original cable (Yellow) incorrectly grounded one side of the microphone and not the shield. That cable will work but it does not protect from RF like the new cable.
Heil sound will not admit this error but has discontinued the Yellow cable.
