The D104 mic element is a high impedance crystal so resistance doesn't
Unplug the D104 head from the stand since there is no assurance the
stand is wired correctly. There are 3 pins in the head connector. The
2 close together are the mic element. Use a high impedance digital
meter, VTVM or oscilloscope connected to the 2 pins. Give a nice long
WHOOOOIE into the mic and you should get over 200 millivolts RMS on the
meter, or 500 mv peak to peak on the scope.
Google "Astatic D104" and you will get an evenings worth of
entertainment and education.
