anywhere else.

I have a midland 70 342B VHF FM radio that works on 2 meters. I need to

The information is not in the Midland manual that I have with the radio (at

It has a 4 pin connector and From trial and error, I know it is not wired...

with no sparks, flames, or burning smells since January 27, 2015, so why
taunt fate? Thats where nerve comes in...

Normally, an "SSB adapter" would be connected to J5, the rarely discussed
SO-239 connector on the rear of the chassis. By...
