Speaker Microphone, and more

Kenwood MC-50 dual impedance desk Microphone:

The Kenwood MC-50 is a dynamic desk microphone. It features
a push-to-talk and lock button. This mic has connector
switched, dual impedance ratings of 50k ohm and 600k ohm.
Frequency response is from 150 Hz to 10 kHz (-6 dB).

The MC-50 is the perfect match for many of classic Kenwood
transceivers such as TS-120S, TS-520S, TS-530S, TS-830S,
but can be used on almost any rig.

This one works 100% and looks close to new.
With paper work for $60.

Yaesu YD-148 Dual Impedance Desk Microphone:

The Yaesu YD-148 is a very nice "goose neck" type
desk microphone.
It has both high and low impedances, which can be
selected by a switch. This means it can be used on
some of the older rigs requiring a high impedance mic,
or with the more modern rigs needing a low impedance mic.

This particular mic is in very nice condition.
It works 100%.
With round 8 pin connector for $85.

TenTec 715 RF Speech Processor:

The Model 715 RF Speech Processor is a high performance
true RF-type speech processor designed to operate with
most modern HF Amateur Radio transceivers. RF speech
processing is a superior system to traditional AF
systems found in a typical HF transceiver.

..Increase average SSB power output by up to 6 dB
..Enhance readability by stations hearing your signal
..Break pileups for DXpeditions faster
..Keep your net or contest run frequency clearer
..Easy to install, easy to operate

The 715 RF speech processor is installed between the
microphone and the microphone jack on your transceiver.
Two microphone inputs are provided -- an 8 pin microphone
connector wired for TenTec and Yaesu, and a 1/8” input
used for direct connection of microphones. 13 V DC required.

This particular unit works 100% and looks like new.
Paper work is included for $200.

DTMF Touch Tone Microphones:

Yaesu MH-15 DTMF Mic
with up/down buttons and lock switch $40

Radio Shack DTMF Mic
with up/down switches, lock switch, and 8 pin modular
plug as used on HT-212, HTX-242, etc. $40

CES 610 L DTMF Mic
Can manually dial a number, or automatically store it in
the mic, and "speed dial". 12 digit touch tone pad on the
front. 8 pin modular plug (like computer LAN).
Looks to be new. $38

Johnson 250-0761-010 DTMF Mic
It has a 12 digit pad on the front, and is a rugged mic.
Looks to be unused. $38

CES 655 L DTMF Mic
Like Johnson above, but with 8 pin modular plug.
Looks new. $38

Kenwood Hand Microphones:

Kenwood MC-43 Hand Microphone:

The MC-43 is the hand microphone that is included with
many of the Kenwood rigs.  It has has up/down switches
on the top, but of course also has a PTT switch on the
side.  The mic itself is a low impedance mic.  It has
a round 8 pin connector as used on many Kenwood rigs.

This one works 100% and looks great.
With paper work for $40.

Hand Microphone with round 8 pin plug for Kenwood, Alinco, etc.

This hand mic works great on most Kenwood rigs with the
round 8 pin connector, such as the TS-430, TS-440, TM-241,
TM-2530, TW-4000, and others, including Alinco and ADI.
It says "Electret Condenser Mic" on the back, and
"Kenwood" on the front, with no model number.

Basically, this mic functions like an MC-43, with a couple
more features. It has the mic and PTT switch; it also has
up/down switches on the top. There are four "extra" buttons
labeled Call, VFO, MR, and PF. What these four buttons do
depends on the rig. There is also a "Lock" switch on the back.

Regardless if you use the four extra buttons or not, you
still have a mic that works like an MC-43.

This mic works fine, and looks like new. I am guessing it
came with a rig, and was immediately put in the drawer,
and never used. $30

Astatic Model 810-6 Gooseneck Microphone:

This mic is on a 12 inch gooseneck. The mic is a brushed
metal about 5 1/4 inches long, and is actually part of the
gooseneck. The cable goes thru the gooseneck. This has a
2 conductor shielded cable, so it is a quality balanced
microphone with low impedance. The gooseneck terminates
in a standard 5/8 inch threaded connector.

This one works fine and looks good. $45

Yaesu Hand Microphones:

Yaesu MH-15 DTMF Touch Tone Microphone:
The MH-15 c6 is a hand microphone that features a 16 digit
DTMF Touch Tone Pad on the back, along with a lock/unlock
switch.  The top has up/down buttons.  Of course the PTT
is on the side.  This one has the round 6 pin connector.
It works fine and looks close to new.  $40

Yaesu YM-17 hand microphone:
The YM-17 is a hand microphone with up/down switches on
the top corner.  It has the round 6 pin connector.
This one works fine and looks really great.  $30

Yaesu YM-31 hand microphone:
The Yaesu YM-31 is a hand mic with a round 6 pin
connector. Apparently it is either similar or the
same as the MH-25A6j (not the MH-25 with the 8 pin
connector). It is a 600 ohm impedance hand microphone,
and has a Monitor on-off switch on the back.
It looks very similar to the Yaesu MH-1.
This one works fine and looks extremely nice. $25

Communications Speakers:

Realistic 21-549 A
This speaker is about 4 inches square and about 2 inches
deep. It is rated for 5 watts, has an 8 ohm impedance, and
is listed as a 300 to 3000 Hz frequency response, making it
ideal for communications. It has a 3.5 mm (1/8 inch) mono
plug, as used by most modern rigs. Gimbal mount included.
It is black in color, looks great, and sounds great. $12

Vanco SPB-5
Appears to be the same at above, but with a Vanco label.
Also includes gimbal mount. $12

Vanco SPB-6
Similar to SPB-5 above, but is considered a noise
cancelling speaker. 10 Watt rating. Still in original
box, new. $18

MFJ-284 HT Speaker Microphone:

This speaker mic has the 3.5 mm and 2.5 mm plugs on
it, as used by Icom, Alinco, Radio Shack, some Yaesu,
and many other HTs.

It works with the following:

YAESU 109, 209, 709, 23, 73, 33, 727 and other YAESU
radios which are pin compatible with the above rigs.

ICOM 2AT, 02AT, 3AT, 03AT, 4AT, 04AT, 12AT, u2A, u2AT,
