    Default XTS3000 Microphonic issue

    I've searched high and low and in the past I remember seeing something (might of been on bat board) about microphonic on the XTS series radio.

    I have a problem with my xts300 model 1 and if the volume is loud it enough it tends to feed back when its receiving a signal. I don't have the issue if I use a RSM.

    Is it a UHF version? I think I remember something about that. Kind of like the Impres battery problem with the 3000. Rf getting back into the radio or something like that. Maybe a bad ground on one of the shields or something like that. I apologize. I don't recall where I read about it. But I do remember reading about it.

    I think I remember see that as well. Mine is a VHF model not using a impress battery. I will check the shields.

    It's the middle battery contact IIRC, put a hunk of tape on it and that will isolate that as being the problem or not.

    It's the odd little things that make you wonder about Motorola stuff. I once had an EX600 that turned off when keyed up by the RSM, turned out it was a bad board. I've used a lot of different brands and it seems the Motorola stuff was at the shop more than anything else.
