I'm wanting to add a ham radio 2m (VHF) radio to my mic/headphone system I DON'T WANT TO ADD IT TO MY PASSENGER CIRCUIT and like to hear from others that have done so. I don't want to spend $200 to add the plug and play and I think (That's the weak link here) I can add to just the mic, headphones and add a seperate PTT button.

What I think I can do is build a breakout box with 5 pin DIN and add them in line

Just looking for someone that has been there

Thanks

You are probably going to need at the very least a passenger type controller or fader to keep it all at your end. BTW is this for your GL1200 or another Wing?

The only way to do it as you stated is to run second mic and PTT
My thinking is using the same mic..... wired to the on board CB and the 2m radio with separate ptt for each radio

Alan, yes its my bike

I'm not sure if you've read/seen this - but this has worked for a few similar installations. http://www.marc-hq.org/40.technotes/40-40.r1993-12.r01p01.htm

In reading the OP, this may not meet your exact need of isolationg the passenger from teh solution since this integrates with the common-channel audio system. Details in the link are for the 1500, but the solution will behave nicely in your 1200's factory intercomm as well.
