I have a President Teddy radio and it is fitted with its standard eletrec microphone and I wanted to fit my Astatic 575-M6 Teardrop to so I got the wiring seqence from President themselves for the Teddy so the was no mistakes and rewired my Teardrop but for some reason it does not seem to be working properly IE: it transmits OK (ish) but on reaceve everyone sounds off frequecy or disstorted TBH ,what I would like to know is my Teardrop not compatible for the Teddy cos it has a electrec mic system on it or is it just my Teardrop, I say this as I did one have the same problem with another radio I had once fitted with the electrec mic system but I managed to sort that one and my Teadrop worked on that,c but this one is confusing me cos according to President it should work but it dont :(
By the way the Teardrop has worked 100% perfect when I have used it my Jackson 1 , Superstar 3900
any advise, help, would be appreciated

Thanks Martin

OK mate cheers I guess it would might be something to do with the Teardrop I'll leave it with the standard mic then, and keep the 575 as a spare to use on my Jackson 1 when I dont use the Silver Eagle on it :)
