    Does anyone know if there is a 90 degree adapter for an Icom 7300 mic.

    My radio sits in front of my keyboard and under my main computer monitor and with the radio stand up the mic cable sticks about 4 inches out from the front of the radio, so I can't push the keyboard up to or under the front of the radio.

    I have searched around but I couldn't seem to find one.

    Thanks in advance.

    Google "8 pin right angle aviation microphone connector". There's one on EBay. But you can't just plug the existing connector into the right angle one (which plugs into the radio)....not "plug and play". You'll have to wire one end into the right angle connector.

    Thanks, I saw those, I found an Ebay guy who will build me an extension cable, that said I may just build my own..

    Here's a little trick I used to do with my Yeasu FT-101ZD boat anchor.
    Measure the outside diameter of the feet on the bottom of the radio.
    Go to you local big box hardware store and get slip-fit, female-to-female PVC couplings to put over the feet and raise the radio up off the desk a bit.
    You can do just the front or front and back.
