    Loving Echo Link but with an Ipad I have to physically turn the Ipad over during TX to get an acceptable audio input level. Is there a lightning microphone available that will allow true duplex without splitters and earphones? I can either yell at the screen or turn it around and speak normally into the tiny mic hole on the back, and it's getting old. Thanks, Ray KB7RVB

    There are myriad microphones sold for the iPhone connector, and for the purposes of Echolink they are pretty much also the same. Decide by ergonomics.

    Also be aware that with new EU regulation, that proprietary connector on the iPhone could be a much more standard USB-C on the next model.

    Another option that would actually serve more than one purpose would be a bluetooth headset.
