I'm pretty sure any High-Z mic would work, Bob.  Probably the venerable 
D-104 would be your best bet.

As for the single pin mic connector, I'm ass/u/me'ing you're talking 
about the connector with the 'button' in the middle,
and a connection on the outside that screws to the connector.

If you can't find a connector, if you've got a used PL-259, you can chop 
off about half of the center conductor, solder your audio lead to the 
center pin, then screw it on, for a 'home-brew' mic connector.

There's one though..
