Yeah, I can take a pic for you. FYI the trick is to offest the throatmic. I generally have the transducer without the earpiece sitting just to the side of my trachea, while the second one that has the ear piece attached sits to the side of my neck.
Something to make sure of is that it's not curled too tight. too much pressure on the transducers and everything gets muffled. really badly. there shoudl be just enough pressure to hold it in place, almost like you have a finger resting against your throat continuously.
I've never heard of anyone getting "staticy" transmissions from a throat mic, or muffled reception. commonly, the earpiece in an acoustic earpiece has a very high treble output, so people tend to be very loud and clear, and sound almost tinny.
Staticy transmissions are generally caused by low transmission power, or interfering transmissions, and high gain on the reciever. the other common cause is a broken solder joint on the circuitry.
