In this video I show a few things to test before adding an “On The Air” LED indicator to a Kenwood TS-50 ham radio transmitter. I tested for the best brightness of the LED and lowest current using a ganged restore test box I built. The LED was then mounted in my Kenwood MC-60 desktop microphone.

The buttons in my Kenwood TS-50S ham radio started falling out when the foam inside started getting old. The foam was the only thing holding the buttons in so I used jewelry repair rings from Michaels Store to clamp around the base of the buttons inside the bezel face plate which then holds the buttons in nicely yet lets them have full travel and good tactical feel.
