    Default Turner Super Sidekick mike internal wiring?

    Hello,

    I picked up a Turner Super Sidekick mike from a guy at a local swap meet. For reasons unknown someone had disconnected, (or ripped out) the internal mike cable, leaving no clue how the connections connect on the board.

    Although I only have $2 invested in this mike, I'd like to get it wired up to see if it works, and if so keep as a "test bench mike" for the various old radios that follow me home from swapmeets.

    I don't need the plug wiring, just an internal pictorial so I can figure out what goes where.

    Thanks,

    Craig

    It is basically a pre-amp board with a 9 volt battery and wiring to PTT switch, microphone element and cable to radio. The schematic is self-explanatory. I wouldn't trust a photo of the microphones today, unless it was a rare one sealed in the box.
    Surplus Sales of Nebraska had those last ones (sold out in late 1990s)
