Several Microphones For Sale:

Johnson / Shure 444 Desk Microphone Parts Unit
This desk microphone looks like a Shure 444, except it has a
Johnson label on the front of the base. My assumption is that
it is a Shure 444 that Johnson had relabeled.
This particular mic has a problem, however. The package smashers
got to it, and the base is in several pieces. By this I mean that
the PTT switch is no longer a part of the base. It, and associated
plastic parts, are now in a separate plastic bag. The metal
switches in the base are dangling from the wires. The mic element
appears to be OK, as it still produces a good pattern on a scope.
Repair it, use it for parts, or whatever. $15

RCA equivalent to a Shure 444 desk microphone
Although the front of this mic says RCA on it, it looks like a
Shure 444, and has a controlled reluctance element in it just
like the Shure 444.  My assumption is that it is a 444 with an
RCA label.
Of course most of us know that the 444 is an extremely good
communications microphone with great articulation.
This one works fine, and looks very nice.  It has a 4 pin
connector on it. $50

Collins MM-1 Mobile Microphone
The Collins MM-1 is a pressure-operated dynamic microphone
designed to fit your hand comfortably. This mike is engineered
for maximum voice response, and its die-cast case is finished
in brushed satin chrome. With its mounting button on the front,
the MM-1 slips easily into a dashboard bracket supplied with
the mike. When the MM-1 is removed from the dashboard bracket,
the microphone is in position for instant transmission. A coiled
cord is supplied with the 22-ounce microphone. The MM-1 has a
frequency response from 200-10,000 cycles per second and has an
output level of -48 db.
This one works fine; there are a couple extremely small pits
(smaller than a pin head) on the chrome, but it looks very
good. The coiled cord is a bit stiffer than when it was new.
With PJ-068 connector (0.206 inch plug) for $100.

Shure 104 C, Low Z hand Microphone
This is a very heavy duty Shure mic. It appears to be new,
with stripped and tinned ends that have never been on a
connector. It is in its original box, with the original
instruction manual. $30

Lafayette EAM-15 dynamic hand microphone
2000 ohm impedance can be used any place a dynamic mic is
needed. Stripped and tinned leads.
It works fine, and looks good also. $25

DTMF Touch Tone Microphones:

KDK DM TT-1 DTMF Touch Tone Microphone
This mic has a 12 digit touch tone pad on it, along with a
switch to turn the pad on and off. I presently has a 4 pin
plug on it, and can be used on most any rig. It works fine,
and looks great. $35

CES 655 L "Microdialer" DTMF Microphone
You can manual dial a number, or automatically have it
stored in the mic, and "speed dial" with this mic. 12
digit touch tone pad on the front, with the microphone
part above the pad. This one presently has a 4 pin plug
on it, but of course that can be changed. $35

CES 600 L, Universal DTMF microphone
This has a normal touch tone pad on the front, with
a low impedance microphone. This one has the 8 pin
modular plug (like a computer LAN) on it. This mic has
not been used, so it is in really great condition.
With paper work for $40.

Data Signal "Data-Coder 5" touch tone mic
This mic has a 12 digit touchtone pad on it, plus a
normal low impedance microphone. With 4 pin plug.
Like new. $38
