The consensus of opinion on the microphone that I am
looking for is that they were sold under several brand
names including Argonne, Calrad, and Herald. The
description again is as follows:
Crystal or ceramic element. Bullet shaped light brown
(almost beige), tapering from about 2 to 2.5 inches in
diameter to a "rounded off" cone in about 4 inches.
The large end had a chromed plastic overlay that was
held in place by two or three small screws. There was
a protrusion (moulded in the plastic) to hold the
metal mounting hardware. This was basically held in
place with a single screw through this protrusion.
The hardware, if I remember correctly was one piece
with internally threaded round piece to fit a "normal"
microphone stand. Coming out just to the rear of this
mounting hardware was the shielded audio cable.
I looked on eBay but didn't find one similar to what I
am looking for. Thus, anyone out there have one of
these to sell or trade (don't want an arm and a leg
for!). It doesn't have to have a stand since I have a
stand that is very similar to my original one. This
is the final thing that I need to complete the
re-creation of my original General Class station from
November of 1959 (the rest of the equipment was
Hallicrafters S-107 receiver, WRL Globe Chief 90A
transmitter, WRL 755 VFO, WRL SM-90 screen modulator,
and Vibroplex Original "bug" of which I still have my
original, the rest of the equipment is all "new").
