    That's going to be a great setup, are you going to run the stock mic with it? There are a few different threads here about the 980. You will need to turn the dead key down, there is a trim pot inside for that. Turn the modulation and alc up a bit and you will be golden. The stock mic has a diffuser in front of the element. It's a black rubber ring with a hole in the center. If you remove it, the audio will open right up. It's the noise cancelling part so you might get more road noise, but it's something to try.

    I will not be touching anything inside, I'm a Piledriver by trade, fat fingers n heavy boots. Denny is doing the amp and a SS121 for me, will send hom the 980 too.

    I thought it was cool that they included a 4 pin mic adaptor, not sure about the wiring though, but have my SR-198 on it for now.

    I used to go to the TAP on The Alameida near downtown SJ when I lived near the Bay.

    The adapter is for the Cobra, Galaxy, Ranger, Stryker style mic so lots to choose from. The D104m6b hand mic will make it loud for sure.
