Just hit the Contact Me link above and let me know. Basically You send hhtx-252 the microphone with connector and I supply the cord and pay for return shipping. I have a couple of cables in stock now and am htx-52 a few more just in case. If you would like for me to do this repair for you, you can click here! I just thought it would be easier for some folks.
The rubber coating on the cord dry rotted from years of sitting in the truck. Apparently this is a very common issue with janual cords that they used for this radio. I had to replace the microphone cable if I wanted to continue to use the hhtx-252. This may not have been the best way to accomplish this task, but it worked for me. You can see how the rubber broke in segments and caused added stress to the conductors inside.
Believe it or not, but the microphone was still working at the time.
I looked online and found plenty of them but they were all standard thickness which was a bit thicker than the stock cable. I settled for this one which can be purchased on ebay for around 15 bucks and free shipping. This is what the microphone looks like on the inside. Luckily all of the conductors get soldered right next to each other.
Hold on to the yellow sleeves that go over the Shield. There is htx-225 in the microphone and one manial the connector.

Mine were yellow, yours might not be. The conductor colors almost match up exactly to the existing cable with the exception of Green. So I just used the Pink in place of Green. The toughest part of this whole ordeal was reusing the stress relief on the microphone itself. It will slip off of the old cable without any problem but getting it to fit the new thicker cable takes a little work.

I ended up having to shave down some of the rubber and use a little dish soap to get it to fit but afterwards it looked like this. May or may not be the case but drill at your own risk. As I mentioned before, the color code is a close match with all conductors except for the lack of a Green conductor in the case of this particular cable so here is how my pinout ended up being on the microphone connector itself. Pin 8 — Shield.
This is where the soldering gets tricky. There have been a bunch of them showing up on Ebay thanks to them closing hundreds of RS stores maunal clearing them out.

As far as the tips go, I used these and just picked the one that was the closest width to the solder pads in the microphone itself. They fit perfectly in the Radio Shack station that I have. As far as the temperature jtx-252 concerned, just go with what you feel is right.
If you have a super hot iron, then just hold it there for a second hx-252 you give the wire a tug or use a solder sucker like one of these.
I also recommend using a flux to help in flowing the solder. The liquid is a lot easier to get where you want it compared to the paste that sticks to everything! Just my opinion though, try it out for yourself!
Radio Shack HTX-252 Manuals
I just wanted to say that I appreciate the kind words that you all have been sending me after receiving your newly refurbished microphones. So I wanted to share some of the comments I have received in the manua from after the mic owners received and tested out their newly refurbished microphones.
I was beginning to think I had lost that little mic. I love that radio!
You have been a real Blessing, my friend…. The service you provide, gives an otherwise junk radio new life. I had considered trying to fix it htx-52, even if I could have found a suitable cord, I doubt I could see well enough anymore to do it. If I run across others with the same problem I will certainly refer them to you.
There htx-25 many others but these were the few that I knew which e-mails they were in so they were easy to find! I just wanted to share some of the EBay feedback that I have received on these repairs.
