    I have a new-in-the-box, (new old stock) Astatic model 897HL desk-top Station Microphone. She's never been used and I tested with my Drake TR-4 using the 897HL in the HIGH impedance mode. Output level and fidelity were excellent. For use on modern ham transceivers requiring LOW impedance, we simply move the slide switch on the bottom of base to LOW. For my test, I tack-soldered the proper mic plug to the pair of wires going to the cartridge, now disconnected after testing. None of the mic cable was cut or altered. Anyway, simply put, she's ready for use on the radio of your choice, high or low impedance. The PTT bar can be locked in place like when operating the AM mode where transmissions can be a few minutes. Here are ten photos for your evaluation. The Astatic 897HL will be in its plastic bag, in original packaging material and box. That will be sent to you in a larger box. Sell for $70 + shipping. E-mail or call anytime. 713-502-2450 Mike W5MP
