    It looks like just about everyone is out of the RF limited 2018 Mics. I somehow misplaced the one I had been using after changing trucks. I'm hoping I stashed it somewhere safe hahaha. Anyhow I still have one from years ago that has seen its better days, so I looked into buying a new one. The only place I could find that had one is GI Joes Electronics. I emailed them to confirm they had one,. I was told they only had a few left so I ordered one and sure enough it was here waiting on me when I got home. I'm sure sooner or later we there will be a big boat from china with a big crate of them, but for now they look to be hard to come by.

    I really like these mics, they can be made to sound good on all my radios.

    Just letting you Extreme 2018 lovers know in case you want one.

    That's a bit high but not crazy money.

    Yes they are pricey, however when set right with just a ever so slight amount of double talk they sound real clean and clear. Even with no echo they give great modulation. I think simonthewizard has a video of one one his YouTube channel.

    GI Joes has never responded to any email I have sent in the past so it surprises me that your email was answered, or is this a plug on the DL?
