Microphones For Sale -- both Desk Mics and Hand Mics

Kenwood MC-85 Deluxe Desk Microphone:

The Kenwood MC-85 is a deluxe unidirectional electret
condenser desk mic. In addition to it being a microphone,
it features UP-DOWN tuning for compatible Kenwood
transceivers. It also has built-in audio level compensation,
preamp and a level meter.

It can be used with up to three different rigs. This one has
one 8 pin mic cable.

This mic requires power that is derived from most Kenwood
rigs that use the round 8 pin connector. For other models,
you will need to install four AA cells (not supplied).

This 700 ohm mic has a 300 to 7000 Hz response.

This particular mic works fine and looks like it just came out
of its box new. No defects.

Paper work is included for $100.

Kenwood MC-50 Desk Microphone:

The Kenwood MC-50 is a dynamic cardioid desk microphone.
It features a push-to-talk [PTT] and lock button. It has a four
pin plug. This mic has connector switched, dual impedance
ratings of 50k ohms and 600 ohms. Frequency response is
from 150 Hz to 10 kHz.

The MC-50 is the perfect match for many of the classic Kenwood
transceivers such as the TS-120S, TS-130S, TS-520S, TS-530S,
TS-820S, TS-830S and others.

This MC-50 works 100% and looks very nice. Most of these
mics have the "piano key" PTT switches that are very yellowed
with age. This one is much better than most.

With paper work for $60.

Icom SM-8 Deluxe Desk Microphone:

The Icom SM-8 desk mic has an electret condenser type
mic element and gives clear tone over a wide variety
of voice levels. The gooseneck may be adjusted to any
angle. It features UP-DOWN tuning on compatible Icom
transceivers. This mic has two outputs for operation to
two transceivers.

On the bottom of the mic base there is one control for
tone, plus separate level adjustments for each output.
The mic cable terminates in a standard round Icom 8 pin
mic plug.

This SM-8 works fine and looks good. Paper work is included
for $115.

Kenwood MC-43 Hand Microphone

The MC-43 is the standard hand mic that is used with most
Kenwood HF rigs. It will work with virtually any Kenwood
rig with the round 8 pin connector, including VHF and UHF
rigs. It has up/down buttons as well as PTT. This one works
fine. The cord has been reinforced right at the mic. $30

DTMF Touch Tone Microphones:

Drake 1525 EM Touchtone (DTMF) Microphone
This is the mic that was used to add a touchtone pad to
many rigs in the 70s and 80s. Normal hand mic from the
front, but a touchtone pad on the back. Four pin mic
plug. This one has been used, but is in good shape and
includes paper work. $35

Johnson 250-0761-010/CES 655 L DTMF Mic
It has a 12 digit pad on the front, and is a rugged mic.
Presently with 4 pin connector. It looks to be unused. $38

HT Speaker Microphones:

Both of these speaker mics have the 3.5 mm and 2.5 mm two
conductor plugs that are spaced about 3/8 inch apart, and
are molded into a single connector. They are used on Icom,
Yaesu, Radio Shack (including the HTX-202 and HTX-404),
Maxon, Ritron, Vertex and many other radios.

Premier SPM-100
It is a lightweight and compact unit, featuring a powerful
speaker as well as a high-quality condenser-style microphone
element that produces excellent transmitted audio clarity.
The microphone may be secured to the user's lapel or shoulder.
It also features a built-in 3.5mm jack for using an external
earphone. $15

Appears to be the same as the SPM-100 above, but just with
a different label. $15

Prices do not include shipping from Florida.

I also have many other accessories available such as many
different types of microphones, HTs, HF, VHF and UHF rigs, HF
and VHF/UHF antennas, etc.
Just too many to list here. Please e-mail your requests.
