    I use a Heil ICM with a ur6qw EQ from ebay on my 7300 .
    superior sound once EQ is set up correctly.

    You have a beautiful home and a first class room room. Why.. cheap out on a microphone. As you see so far, anything will work but you decide your budget. The XM 8500 is $ 20.00. Good mic, but you have to hold the microphone position to stay in the pattern. That's what small dynamic elements do. The 781 or a Pr-40 are more forgiving moving off axis. The Chinese condenser mics need 48 volts to
    operate and sound quite good They very sensitive picking up back ground noise like fans or the phone in the next room. Just me, but I cant see a Radio Shack mic in that swanky station of yours. I do see a PR-40, or if you cash out an IRA...... the RE-27 IS the end of the rainbow. Best of luck !

    Does anyone know if a Blue Yeti Pro is compatible with HF rigs?

    Bob says his ICM mic, I've heard people try dozens of other mics, non as good asthe hand mic that comes with the radio but the ICM is the best way to go, it us easy and guaranteed to work..
    If you try other that Icom or Bob's you're going to have to get the blocking cap and get it set up properly and then start screwing with the audio settings.

    The 7300 accepts many microphones, from electret capsules to the most prestigious and expensive microphones, I have a Heil Sound PR781 dynamic microphone that has an excellent frequency response especially on low frequencies, but the level is a bit low so I developed this project, very versatile preamplifier that accepts various microphones also providing a phantom voltage selectable from inside by means of jumpers. As you can see from the photos, the realization is highly professional:

    For any info please write me , 73’s Silvano I1WSM

    It is common for people with modern radios to try nice dynamic mics like Ekectrovoice or Heil and wonder why they sound so bad on their radio designed for condenser mics. They usually just need as properly configured preamp.

    Worst is when they don’t realize how bad they sound and keep telling you that they MUST sound great because they have an expensive mic.

    Very nicely done! I am only curious as to what the (model -#) or name "2166" comes from?
    Very beautifully done! Looks Expensive!

    This is one of the best and true statements that I've seen on QRZ in a long time!

    You're right on, what you stated I hear that on the air all the time.

    On the 7300 and 7610 it's hard to beat the stock hand microphone unless you know what you're doing. There are so many of those rigs on the air daily, I think people need to step back and review what you just stated before they just hook any old microphone up.
    It's possible to get many microphones to work on those rigs but working in salmon good are wo different things.

    I do have to say, though, that I have heard RE-27ND on a 7300 and a PR 40, and on the 7300 they sounded pretty good even with no pre-amp.

    I use a preamp with my RE27ND because I use other audio gear that does not work effectively with such low levels.
