Hello junkies today I'm working on my Telex Turner RK-56. I'm having troubles figuring out the wiring. Mine seems to have different wiring compared to the ones I see online. I'm deciding on whether im going to wire it to a 5 pin for my cobra 19 plus or to a 4 pin cobra 25. Here's some pics guys (sorry the tablet only has a front camera)

Look on CB Tricks for wiring info...One other note, I wouldn't try and rewire the switch, just rewire the Mic plug.

I've looked at diagrams for the plug but it seems I'm missing the blue wire it mentions and I can't figure out why it doesnt have that wire.

Are you sure that's a "Turner" RK 56 and not something else like a knock-off? Does it say Turner Telex rk 56 on the back?

What are you trying to rewire this for anyway?

Yes it says "Telex Turner Rk-56" on the back. I'm rewiring it because I got it at an auction and it must have been wired for something else. I'm considering sending it to a tech.

Anytime a mic needs to be rewired to another radio, the plug side is what gets worked in, not the mic itself. 99.9% this is the case.
Learn the basics first. Get yourself a copy of Lou Franklin's "The Screwdriver Expert" book and read it cover to cover. Twice.
