    Go to Ken's Electronics. They sell one there just for the HTX 100. It has the up and down buttons included and runs about $40.

    If you can find a Kenwood Mic, they should work with the HTX-100. My brother used to have a TS-50, and the mic worked worked fine on my HTX-100.

    I put a commercial Kenwood mike on my HTX. Had to solder a connector on the end to the right pins. It didn't have any up/down buttons, but the audio is superb. I never got many compliments on the original mike, but got a lot on the replacement. "Can't believe that is an HTX-100" was typical.

    Any dynamic mike should work, some will sound better than others.

    Joe, I'm too cheap to spend $40 on a mic for my HTX-100, so I wired up one from a Cobra 29. I know, I know. How could I ever mix the holy with the profane? :D

    Right. I agree. A mike is just a mike. Some CB mikes are pretty good. I had a Kenwood mobile mike, for free, so I wired it on. I never used the up/down buttons anyway.

    A HTX 100 is worth about $100. Seems a little overboard to spend $40 on a mike. But that's just me. YMMV.
