    Does anyone know where you can buy the push to talk switch for the Astatic D104M6B?

    Take apart the switch down to every piece like I did and clean every part by hand than file good contacts on the ptt plates and put in new wire solder it back up u should be fine.

    I have cleaned the switch using contact cleaner, but it starts to act up again in 2 or 3 months.

    No u have to manually file the contacts quit taking short cuts....contact cleaner isn't always the problem solver solution.

    Contact cleaner as well as gun scrubber spray work great for cleaning the switch.

    Okay Guys I have another question. Have all the D104M6 mics had the switch problem or is it just the newer ones? Is there a way to look at the mic and tell if it will have the problem if not all of them have it? Thanks again for all your responses.
