Radio 101 - How to use a throat mic


Throat mics such as the XLT TM-200-MT are popular two way radio accessories for use in noisy environments. But how do they work and how do you properly wear one? In this episode of Radio 101, Anthony from Buy Two Way Radios will show you what a throat mic is, how it works and how to use one like a pro.

My interest was piqued by the link for information on Throat mics. I was hoping for recommendations about how to overcome the problem that I have experienced with poor clarity while using throat mics. The only theme this video discusses is how to put it on. Really? Information like that could be communicated with a simple drawing or photo if it weren't obvious to the user already. The video could have been much better utilized to make recommendations about how to overcome problems associated with throat mics. It could have been a very helpful, but instead there doesn't seem as if there is much to be gained by this video.

I really wish someone would help me with my clarity issues using my throat mics and motorola BTRs. I have no idea where to go for a resource on troubleshooting this problem.
