Ok makes sense to use the DIN connector so I’ll pick one up there not that expensive. One last dumb question. Let’s say I follow the suggested set up with the foot pedal...... so i get the foot pedal, plug the amp cable on the pedal into the amp, install a din connector on the other cable end as instructed, plug the DIN into the back of the Kenwood, and for now keep the stock hand mic. What would be the sequence for transmitting? If the foot pedal is keying the amp and the Kenwood would I still key the hand mic? Or simply depress the foot pedal and begin to speak? In other words I mean if the hand mic is kept for now, when I depress the foot pedal does the pedal bypass the PTT button on the hand mic?
