Replacement of the IM-103 hand mic RJ-45

The RJ-45 locking tab on the original mic broke allowing the mic connector to easily come loose from the rig. I thought the replacement would be pretty straight forward. Looking at the factory connector, I could see a blue, white, gray, green, and black wire. So, when I cut off the old connect, I surprised to find a blue, white, red, green, and black connector but no gray!

The gray connector was the silver ground with a factor coating! The last picture shows my attempt twist all the silver ground wires together. After triming to length and carefully sliding the wires into their appropriate places in the new connector, I clamped them into place.

I'm glad to report the mic works!
