searched the forum-no results---does anyone know a good source to buy some microphone cable?
I dont need a lot, around 10 feet, I got a couple Electrovoice mics i wanted to hook up to my Yaesu ft-950 just to play around.
I have two fairly good mics,an md-100 and a Heil headset in use, but love the looks of these oldies and
wanted to give them a spin on-air.
Just got the bare mics, so also in need of a source for a four pin male plug to go into the Electrovoice 664.
Tnx in advance for any help.
Feel free to contact off list if you want K8MCN at arrl.net
PS_i did find one source for 4 wire mic cord, but minimum purchase was 1000'.....that would last my great grandkids lifetime hihi

2-wire shielded works fine and that can be found all over the place.

Worse comes to worse, I can send you 10-feet. I buy it in 500-foot rolls.

Belden Brilliance microphone cable #1776 and #2221 are used in professional, broadcast, and new digital microphones. Mouser and Digi-Key are 2 popular distributors. For amateur radio usage -- use #1776.

Bob Heil sells his Heil wire, which features 2 wires for PTT function outside the audio wire and shield.

Your popular retail or Internet amateur radio dealer should have these, in stock.

COOPER Industries bought the original Amphenol, Salem, NJ plant a couple of years ago and STOPPED making Amphenol #86 and #91 connectors .... SO GET THEM NOW, prices are rising.
