Further to post 33381, I just wanted to let Codan 9323 owners know that Jerry C (WA) was right and I just needed to replace insert (about $25) and all working fine again.

So if anyone has the same problem, definitely look at that first before paying for a new mic!!

Micro phone



Not the latest hand held telephone.



This is a small plastic grill with a curly cord that plugs into the radio. It sometimes has numbers and stuff on buttons on it, but only on radios that were bought instead of houses. These buttons mean you don’t have to fiddle with the radio because you can fiddle with the buttons instead. Clever, huh ?

Some REALLY expensive radios have the buttons poking out a bit. You can play with the wrong buttons accidentally and really have some fun.

The plastic grill is where you yell into when your mate can’t understand what you’re on about. It should really have a sign saying ‘put your germs here’ because it’s never washed unless you dunk the car on Cape York. As well as germs you can always tell a REAL microphone from the red dirt in the grill. This can be handy to know when buying a “never been off the tar “ 4wd.

Micro phones don’t like their cords being stretched too far ( neither would you)

They can refuse to work if you do this. A cunning plan is to have a spare in the glove box. Murphy will hate you for this.

Thanks Footloose.
Had a good chuckle.
I think you know the cost of a Codan mic / cord - but if start saving right away, who knows...................
Sounds like a great idea though (in fact wisdom!), particularly seeing Murphy is around here pretty often.

JD, experience has taught me to keep a spare one in the glovebox. Yes you're right about the cost !

I've bought two off Ebay and one from Codan. Sold the two off Ebay and kept the new one as a spare. The mic plug is another hard to get bit. Try ordering the lead and plug...then sit down for the price !

Hey Jim

Sometimes life has in store pleasant surprises.

I got a price from a northern repairer/dealer for a replacement cord & plug for my NGT when he offered to change it over while he had it to do a firmware upgrade. I got his supply only price ($140-150ish) and said no thanks.

I rang Telstat to query them and got requoted the same price I had a month earlier - I had them take it to Wandin the next day and picked it up for $85 inc GST.

Given they quoted it to me twice though I don't think it was a mistake.

I don't think carrying a spare mic for the NGT is a realistic option. I'm not that rich.

Given the way second hand prices are going it's nearly worth picking up a 9323 and keeping the whole thing as spare parts. Codan's gonna stop servicing them some day but not in the near future I dare say.
