Be gently it’s my first post. 
I have recently found my way back to radio after the best part of 20 years. I’ve bought the said radio but I’m not happy with the standard mic as you seem to have to nearly eat it to be heard ( not that it’s busy around here) so I’ve bought the kpo as a replacement. Is anybody else running the same set up and what rig and mic settings are best as I don’t want to overdrive the modulation. It’s a waste of time getting a radio check in Bournemouth as nobody seems to be on air and I’ve not had time to get to higher ground as yet. 

Cheers Macca ct4337.

Not sure on the KPO mic but i think people take the foam out of the standard mic and find it works ok.
Well i think it is the same with your radio but somebody will put me right soon.

What I neglected to say it’s the mm 532 power mic I’m sure some people will say it’s not needed but the vids on you tube are looking favourable to me.

Have you managed to turn the Mic gain up in the menu? they normally come set at about Mid-way

The mic gain is set at 30 which should be ample I just don’t like the fact you’ve go to have the mic so close to your mouth. I prefer to have the mic a more comfortable distance away from my face so I don’t splatter all over it if you know what I mean.

You should talk across the mic rather than into it, so if you prefer a comfortable distance, then adjust the mic gain  to suit that distance, then you're comfortable, and the mic is doing its job.
