Use above guide or you can always wire it to a 4 pin (Cobra) plug and then get a 4/Cobra to 8 Icom adapter on eBay or elsewhere.
Most amateur radio's have a pretty wide audio bandwidth a D104 would effectively degrade that. Is that on purpose? Plus the Icom has +8V on the cord you could either power the unit or you could replace the mic element with and electret and power it from the radio.

    Maybe. I wasn’t impressed with just clamping the shield wire to the boom with a hose clamp. I built a l bracket with so239 female hubs. I posted a picture on the recent gallery’s.

    Well I cut the matching stubs down 1 inch at a time from about 20” down to 6”. Still no real changes.

    Hello everyone, I have a old courier centurion pll 40 channel SSB, it has the extra channels and it has another switch that just moves the frequency down one channel on the dial, what is the purpose for this?
