After we finally got you working and making contacts on-the-air, this news was disheartening!!
And, in addition to the wiring
details I posted in your other thread...
(where I wrote that your best bet is to buy a new mic or find someone that could effect this repair...)
1) I'd like to highlight my words from that posting
/ add a caution here....

Please take note that the tiny wires in mic cords and the small pins of the mic plugs are NOT someplace where a "soldering gun" is conducive to success!
Rather a small, low-wattage, soldering iron (with a "pencil" tip) is what I recommended....
I see comments about soldering guns
, and I cringe!
Yes, I've got a standard 100/140watt Weller gun on-board, but also a nice 30-watt iron with a fine "pencil" tip....and it is the iron and fine tip that I would recommend...along with someone that knows what they are doing...
2) And, please take this heart-felt recommendation seriously...
--- Move the radio, or build a guard-rail / bracket in front of it...
--- And/or install some more / better hand-holds for YOU, so that you can better hold-on and not bump into things....after all, you could sustain an injury just as likely as you "injuring" your radio!
