I have read good reports on modified Airlite 62 headsets.
Has anyone carried out this modification?
I would like to hear how you got on if you did.

Hi Richard,

They're supposed to be great bits of kit and if you like the old headset/mic combination then all is good.
(Me personally, it's big old extension speaker and handheld mic!)

You're gonna have to do a bit of wire tracing on them and wire them up accordingly. Fine if you're up for that sort of thing Wink

This was about the best I could find about converting them :-

Hope that helps.
(Perhaps someone who's done it or used them can give you more feedback in operation.)

All the best,
Victor

Victor,

Thanks for the information, It's not my speciality but I think I will give it a go.

Thanks again,

Richard

Hi Richard,

No worries my friend, always nice to try something new Smile

I've since spoken to a Ham friend who reckons these Airline headsets are the Dog's B's without having to fork out the ridiculous prices places charge for "professional" headsets. After looking at some prices I agree!
Sure, you could work out an 'hourly rate' for your time in converting them but we usually do these things for the love of it. After all, we don't charge our loved ones an hourly rate for the things we do for them Wink

Take it as a challenge for yourself, it's just a few more wires than rewiring a three pin mains plug. You could even make an adapter 'box' and that way you could use these great headsets on any radio you have or will ever have.

I know from recent DX QSO's with our European counterparts that they relish this sort of stuff, often telling me about their  homemade mic solutions with great pride. I'm sure they all had massive smiles giving me this info, especially when I tell them "well done, your TX audio is fantastic!" Smile

Anyway, best of luck with it.

Victor,

I have been looking on and off for months now for the right one.

There are a few out there and the one I have coming is new.

I will tell you more about it and if it lives up to expectation when it arrives.
