Fun Microphone

After building the uBITX 5 I needed something to house the little electret mic cartridge that came with the kit. I had an old D-104 with a dead element hanging around, so I decided to use that. I get great audio reports from that 10 cent element. The microphone is now bigger than the radio, but it's fun to use. The uBITX drives a Ten Tec Titan II to about 500 watts p.e.p. on 20 meters - more lower and less higher. A lot of fun.  See the picture:
