    Ten-Tec 708 with a Ten-Tec OMNI V. I like the two way PTT switch.

    In the shack, particularly on AM, I prefer the full range sound with slight pre-emphasis of an Audio Technica ATM61HE.

    For my mobile, where I want background noise cancellation with LF roll-off and a nice upper-mid boost for clarity, I use an Astatic 636L dynamic. (and I have several of them)
    I don't care if they are sold as a 'CeeBee' mic... it is a darn good sounding, heavy duty mic at a reasonable price.

    I use A Heil PR40 on a boom with a hand switch and the Pro 7 headset for DX Works well with my FT2000, I receive great audio reports, pricey but well worth it.

    What I'm using most of the time today is a Heil Pro Set Elite. Light and comfortable...not too expensive...works fine. ;)

    I have a couple of several hundred dollar Heil mics and a <$50 Yamaha CM500 headset and the CM500 sounds better than the Heil's.
