Re: Looking for a better mic suggestion

Noel Seeley


In my situation, I use a commercial Kenwood microphone. I have four Kenwood radios (two commercial, two amateur) in my vehicle and use an eight pin switch box connected to each. That way, I can have only one microphone for all four by turning a switch. The audio reports have all been good, especially on the amateur radios. I did find a commercial mic with DTMF keypad (eBay was my friend), so I only lost the four extra buttons on the face and two buttons on top of the original. You might look into that. YMMV.

As any owner of this radio learned after about a minute of using it, the control microphone with which the package comes is not a stellar performer. It has its own distinctive sound, and since I'm using my radio a lot more than I have over the pat five years, I'd like to replace it. I realize that by replacing it, I'll probably lose the functions of the control pad, but I can probably live with that. Any suggestions for stock (no rewiring required) replacements?
