On my TK-8180 I am getting reports that my audio is clear but very quiet when going through the repeater in my area. And while speaking closer to the mic helps, if I get any closer I will know what the plastic tastes like.
On the flip side, when I am talking locally without the repeater, I am being told not to talk so loudly, or to back away from the mic.
I looked in the programming software for my radio and the only thing I have found is an option for Mic Sense. My only 2 choices are high and normal. I have tried both settings and the difference is minimal.
Is there a setting I am just not seeing to adjust the mic's gain? Is there such a thing as a "powered" mic with adjustable gain?
The mic I am trying to resolve this issue with is a Kenwood KMC-9C desk mic. I was using KMC-35 that was better in the sense of audio output but the KMC-9C is much better in a desktop environment since the rubber base keeps it in place.
