    Default xts3000 PTT Paddle

    Is the PTT paddle replaceable on these radios or do you have to rehouse the whole radio.

    Thanks

    I think you need the whole housing, according to the parts exploded view.

    I don't know if it can be operated on to accept a donor.

    Can it be done ... yes.. Is it a pain to do Yes. you have to pull up the whole piece where the three upper buttons sit and not break it and then try to re-attach it with an adhesive that won't make the buttons stick. SO as speaking from experience find a new case it's easier and probably worth it not to be aggravated.

    We have done those in the past in our shop. Yup, they are a pain but it is pretty simple once you get past the first time.
