Various Microphones For Sale:
Desk Mics, Hand Mics, DTMF Touch Tone Mics, Speaker
Mics, and Miscellaneous Mic accessories

Shure 444 D dynamic desk microphone:
The Shure 444 D has voice shaping built in to it, with PTT
switch on the base. Under the base are switches for High or
Low Z, and PTT or VOX.  This mic is the black color, and is
in very nice shape.  With paper work for $60.

Astatic D-104 "Lollypop" Desk Microphone:

The D-104 is a high impedance microphone that matches many
of the older rigs, and is often seen pictured with them.
It looks somewhat like a giant chrome plated lollypop, stuck
into a gray base.  The chrome PTT switch is a bar that is
parallel to the "stick" of the lollypop.  This is the
unamplified version.

This particular D-104 is in extremely nice condition.
Of course it works well, and has good frequency response.
Cosmetically, it is extremely nice.  The chrome seems
perfect, with no scratches or defects of any sort.
The gray base has a couple of very minor scratches.
It presently has a 4 pin connector, but that obviously
could be changed. $55

Another Astatic D-104
This D-104 is the mic element and chrome housing, but does
not have the base with it.  It has a short (about 3 inch)
tube that is made to screw into a regular mic stand (see
stands available in this listing).  It has an in line PTT
switch, and presently has the 2 pin Amphenol plug as used
by Heath, Johnson, Hallicrafters, and others.
It works well, and looks great.  $35

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 about a 4000 ohm impedance. The gooseneck
terminates in a standard 5/8 inch threaded connector.

This one works fine and looks good. $45

Turner 350, High Impedance Hand Microphone
This is a Hi Z hand mic, that looks like a Turner 350.  The
label is off of it, but I am 99% certain it is a 350.  This
one is the grayish color, and has a right angle 1/4 inch
stereo plug on it, as used by many rigs in the 1970's.  It
has a great pattern on the scope, and looks fine as well. $28

Deluxe Desk Microphone - Kenwood round 8 pin:

This is a great looking and great performing low impedance
desk mic. It has a quality Shure 600 ohm cartridge in it
(the cartridge alone is over $40 new), with a very nice
black die case base and neck, with a chrome grill. It
looks somewhat like a Shure 444, but no plastic on this
one -- all metal!  This one has a round 8 pin connector
wired for Kenwood on it, but that can be changed.

This one looks like new, and works the same. It has a
long (approx 6 foot) cord. $75

Heil HM-10-5 Deluxe Microphone:

The Heil HM-10-5 is a beautiful microphone resembling the
"gold line series". It has the HM-5 wide element for good
frequency response, and good articulation.
This particular microphone looks very close to new.
It includes paper work in its original fancy Heil box. $75

Hand Microphone with round 8 pin plug for Kenwood:

This hand mic works great on most Kenwood rigs with the
round 8 pin connector, such as the TS-430, TS-440, TS-570,
TM-241, TM-2530, TW-4000, and others.
It only says "Electret Condenser Mic" on it, with no
model number.

Basically, this mic is like an MC-43, only with a couple
more features. Of course 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 that it is attached to.
They will function on some rigs, and are completely useless
on others. 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. $28

Kenwood Mic with modular connector:

This mic is basically the same as the one with the round
8 pin connector above, except it has the modular plug on it,
as used by the TM-261, TM-271, and many others.
It looks like new.  $30

Yaesu Hand Microphones:

Yaesu MH-1 Hand Microphone
The Yaesu MH-1 b8 is the hand mic that is used on most of
the Yaesu HF and some of the Yaesu VHF rigs. It is a hand
mic that has a switch on the back with two audio frequency
responses -- one for rag chewing, and one for more punch
for DX. It has up and down switches, in addition to a
"fast" switch. Of course it also has the normal PTT
switch. It has a round 8 pin mic connector, wired for
This particular microphone looks like it might not have
ever been used. I think it was probably put in a drawer
when new, and left there. Of course it works fine. $40

Yaesu MH-31 B 8 dynamic hand microphone:
This is the Yaesu hand microphone that has the round 8
pin connector on it.  It will go with virtually any Yaesu
rig that uses the round 8 pin connector.  It has up, down,
and fst switches, and well as a tone switch, in addition
to the PTT switch.
This particular unit works 100%, and appears to be unused.

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 should
be compatible with any of the Yaesu rigs that uses the
round 6 pin connector. It looks very similar to the
Yaesu MH-1.
This one works fine and looks extremely nice. $25

Yaesu YM-22 DTMF Condenser Microphone
This mic has a 16 digit touch tone (DTMF) pad on the front.
There are up and down buttons on the top, in addition to
the PTT switch.
Stripped and tinned ends. Great condition. $40

Heath SB-1400-2 hand microphone
This hand mic is basically the same as a Yaesu MH-1, but
with a Heath label. Use it with the SB-1400, or with Yeasu
rigs with the round 8 pin connector. Like new for $40.

Yaesu YM-22 DTMF Condenser Microphone
This mic has a 16 digit touch tone (DTMF) pad on the front.

front. 8 pin modular plug (like computer LAN).

Johnson 250-0761-010 / CES 655 L DTMF Mic

Yaesu MH-34 b 4 b speaker microphone
This is the one that fits the Yaesu HT with the 4 conductor
1/8 inch (3.5 mm) plug, such as the VX-5, VX-3, etc.
This one is just like new. $35

Pryme Speaker Microphone
This is the equivalent of the Yaesu MH-34 (above). It
has the 4 conductor 1/8 inch plug on it. It works 100%
and looks like it has not been used. $28

Yaesu YM-24 A speaker microphone
This speaker mic fits the Yaesu FT-207, 208, plus many
others. It can be modified for Santec, Wilson, and others.
It has the odd little round connector on it like Yaesu,
Wilson, Santec, and others used in the 1970s and 80s.
This particular unit works fine, and looks great also.

All of the following speaker mics have the 3.5 mm and
2.5 mm plugs on them, as used by Icom, Alinco, Radio Shack,
some Yaesu, and other HTs.

conductor 2.5 mm plug.
It works fine, and looks close to new. $15

different types of microphones, HTs, VHF and UHF rigs, HF
