I need some help with a Turner 350 Hi-Z mic and my model 509 Argonaut.  I just 
got the mic, which came without a plug, so I could start using phone with my 
Argonaut, but I have a wiring problem.  The manual says, in 2 places, to hook 
the tip to PTT, the band to the mic, and sleeve or barrel to ground.  The mic 
connections are audio white, PTT red and black (ground).  I wired it with the 
tip to red, band to white, and black and shield to the barrel, but when I push 
the PTT on the mic, even with the drive at minimum on the radio, I get a max 
deflection on the meter with the switch on the FWD position.  I looked at the 
circuit diagram for the radio, and it seems the tip of the mic should go to the 
audio, as it goes to the SSB module, and the band should go to PTT since it 
goes to the same line as the key.  Is this correct?  I don't want to take it 
apart to redo it if I'm missing anything else.
