    Yup. 3.5 mm stereo jack to 3.5 mm mono plug should do it. I did the same thing last year on my Dad's IC-718.

    A friend bought me an Icom 7300, and I will get it tomorrow. I have heard that the hand mic is excellent. If I upgrade one day, which icom mic has worked best?

    I also have a Behringer xm8500, which I wired for my old Yaesu. If I rewire for Icom, will the 7300 have enough gain for it to work well?

    That is a pretty good friend I'd say!!
    Excellent is pretty tough to beat. Best?? A lot "just depends".
    It probably will work just fine.

    I'm a little confused as to what a "id-1-ic" adapter is. If there is such a product ignore this post.

    HEIL does make an "ICOM AD-1-IC" adapter which does not have a headphone jack. The AD-1-IC has 2 female jacks, a 1/8" female jack and a 1/4" female jack. The 1/8" jack is for the male plug "IC mic element" mic output of HEIL Pro-Set headphones, and the 1/4" jack is for PTT control such as using a footswitch. The other end of the AD-1-IC plugs into the ICOM radio mic jack. And of course the headphones plug into the separate radio "PHONES" jack. This "AD-1-IC" adapter has no headphone input, just mic and PTT line control.

    The HEIL adapter for ICOM is different than say KENWOOD. I have two ICOM AD-1-IC's and the female 1/8" mic input jack says "no cap". HEIL supplies a "special" mic element for ICOM radios. I'm not so sure "just any microphone" will work with an ICOM.

    My apologies if this is irrelevant information.

    Haha. Yes. I paid him back. Picking it up tonight.

    Radios are a lot higher, here in Korea. I got the 7300 out of Japan for just over $1,100. Saved about $500. Japan spec, so no 60m, but we do not get 60m in Korea, anyway.

    The supplied hand mic has a little bit of "pop" to it. I did some on air-testing with another station and compared the supplied 7300 mic with an SM-30 from my other Icom rig. The report received was that the SM-30 made the radio come alive. That was with no additional adjustments. Just switching the mics made a world of difference.

    Just an update... I'm really impressed with the sound of the Icom 7300's supplied hand mic. I'm getting lots of good reports with it. I rolled off the bass a little bit, and added a bit to the highs. Seems to sound great.

    I actually got this e-mail, which kind of creeped me out at first, but I know he was just a JA being kind *laugh*:

    The AD-1-IC is the adapter for the Heil traveler headset. It is designed only to interface the electret mic in the headset with the transceiver, hence the "No Cap" tag on the cable. I think the OP meant to say AD-1-IC and transposed ID-1-IC by mistake. They offer another adapter for Icom that contains a cap on the mic input to protect dynamic mic elements.
