No, I never have - at least not that I recall.  You said that it will 
only transmit via the speaker mic ... mine is transmitting a carrier but 
there's no modulation.  If your experience is similar, I might try 
plugging in one of the ones I have.  I haven't because I heard reports 
that they cause it to stick but there hasn't been a good discussion that 
I've seen regarding the symptoms of "sticking".
