    Does anyone know the pinout for the mic for this radio. I have a generic mic (round 8 pin that works on a kenwood) and was wondering if this will work on the yaesu radio as well.

    How did you arrive at this conclusion??

    IF you are looking for EASY Plug-N-Play, the Answer would be NO ... Based on Yaesu versus Kenwood accessories.
    HOWEVER -- virtually any Microphone can be matched to a Radio's Audio Input (some easier than others).

    You are correct, as with a little swapping the wires around, the mic would work. I don't wish to completely change the mic connector now, because I use that mic on a 2 meter radio, but I guess I could build a patch cable that would allow it to work when I decided to use the hf radio. Just have to decide how lazy I want to be with this project.

    Correct, an adapter cable could have been built.
    That is your personal choice, based on your DIY skills, motivation,
    and your financial situation (size of pocketbook).
