Re: BM800 Microphone

i bought one of thozse bm800 mics... I used it with my elecraft k3, which provides the voltage on the mic line for the electret.
since the mic provided with the elad is a icom knockoff... it too is probably a electret... so IF you wire it correctly it should work fine.
That mic , if you pull it apart ( which is the first thing i did ) the 'large" element was open front and back... which would pick up shack noise, so you could open it up and put some absorbent stuff between the back side of the element and the case...
I had to buy one to see how bad it was...and was suprised how well it worked. It is an electret so how bad could it be ???
looks way too cool for my shack... but unbelevable for 29$
Over 40 years in audio business I was a factory representative for different companies... Sennheiser, AKG then Shure brothers ... so I had to try one of the fancy microphones///
