    Default Red black leads

    Just curious if anyone has recommendations on leads that are good quality. Over time the wire begins to break my transmitter will start to induct or couple while I have my leads attached. I've been fixing my leads myself but wondered if there were any that wouldn't have this problem. Also does the guage affect signal if I make my own? Thanks...

    What transmitter? I like the coiled leads compared to straight wire like having a hose reel. There are aftermarket leads for most transmitters and yes you can make your own as long as they are truly insulated. The bigger the wire gauge the better.

    Greetings Cuda! Where as orangeboots has his leads made by another, I always made my own leads using 12 gauge clear plastic speaker wire back when I used the Radiodetection T1 1-watt transmitter. With my 10 watt Radiodetection TX10 8 pin connector transmitter I am using today, I don't thinks it's possible to hammer out a set of durable 12 gauge leads using that puny connector.

    Your referral web sight knocked my socks off! I got instant chub when I saw the "Coily Cord" kinkless Lead 8 Pin Connector #RD8pinCoily for my Radiodetection TX10:



    It's pricey, but what the heck - It's unique and exactly what I've been looking for.............. just sayin.'
