Hello I've been lurking here for quite sometime while in the search for a sailboat. Now that I have a new to me boat, I actually have question and cannot resolve it.
I have a ICOM
M502 VHF radio
at the nav station and a H127 command mic at the helmsman seat. I've had the boat only a month or two when I first got it I was fiddling with the instruments at the nav station, VHF
included. I noticed when the VHF came on it would broadcast over the speakers for the stereo as well as the pair of cockpit
Which was fine but being inquisitive, I wanted to figure out how to quite those and just get it over the speaker in the unit itself. So I started pushing buttons on the VHF and somehow was able to do so.
Now the problem, for the life of me I can't get the VHF to broadcast over the ships speakers only right on the ICOM
unit itself. I tried everything in the manual which was basically turn the internal speaker on and off but to no avail.
I then pulled the panel and looked at the back of the radio
and there is nothing hooked up to the external speaker jack. I looked about and could not find where something came unplugged.
So unless there is another way to broadcast on the ships speakers not using the external speaker jack I am confused. Could it be wired in somewhere along the cable that goes to the mic in the cockpit
Looking for any and all ideas
