Best Mic? 955

I think individual voice, tone, volume etc is a factor. A basey voice may sound better over Astatic? A higher tone, etc, on the following three? Just a thought. Myself, an original, if you can find one, RK-56, or a TopGun 56 (built like original RK-56,) and Ranger SRA 198. I use all three, and like all fairly equally, getting positive audio checks on all.

I have been playing around with different mics on my 955 the last few days. I had the radio into a dummy load and listened to myself with 3 other radios (980SSB, RTL-SDR, and Tecsun PL-330). By a long shot, I think the stock mic has the best sounding audio and is the loudest. Every other mic I have tried with this radio keeps me going back to the stock mic.

I wonder if that's because they're matched? Add road noise to it, and a noise canceling mic may shine.

    My first thought was the i.r.s. may be interested in a long term money making scam without proper taxes being paid..probably more than electronics involved.

    My first thought was why hasn't someone paid him a visit. I mean, his address is posted above.
  • @ beakster1715:
    Good news! I opened an appeal case after eBay sided with superhawkwss6. I also opened an IC3 case & sent that information to eBay. Within an hour they responded, reversed their decision and returned all of my money. Unfortunately, superhawkwss6 stole my CB radio and eBay will likely not suspend or close his account, but rather allow him to continue his criminal activity. I think I'll still file a report with our sheriff's dept (the sheriff is a friend of mine) though I know this type of crime isn't worth their time. This guy needs to be stopped and I'm certainly going to do my best to make that happen.
