    Hi guys I did git a old hand mic for my cb, now I am looking for a D-104 desk mic , tug 8 if I can find one. Must work and have a 4 pin plug i have a old RCI 2980. The mic can look like HELL as loung as it works good. I can not pay much so if you have one that's cheap let me no. I will not pay what that want on E-BAY for the junk thay have. Thanks

    this one seems like a good deal:

    if you are looking to pay less than that for a D104, then i wish you good luck sir, as these are still very popular mics, and many are still being used these days.

    also, finding an old D104 that doesn't need any work is tough even when you are willing to pay a lot for one.
    most likely you are at least going to have to replace the mic cord.

    Is that an un amplified d104? He doesn't show a picture of the bottom. The high impedance element connected directly to a modern rig doesn't sound good. Most of the original elements are shot anyway.

    I've found a several reasonably priced D-104s on E-Bay but like a lot of stuff now the shipping price really kills the deal. You might try getting out to a local Hamfest to find what you're looking for at the price you want. I'll be doing some "shopping" up at the Belton Hamfest on October 5th (and some selling too ).

    Just purchased two amplified D104s off ebay for about $50 total from different sellers. You've got to be patient to get a good deal but these were in nice shape and worth it.

    Yes, they both did. One had a corroded battery so I replaced the 9v battery snap but that was it. Other than some paint scratching on the bases the chrome was in nice shape, too. Been in radio for over 40 years and these are my first D104s..
