    I am thinking about adding the "extra element " in the MD200 yaesu mic ..the radio is the 7300 icom ..ordered some electret condensers , Panasonic 61a and another quality one ..
    looking for anyone who runs such a mic with electret mod done to md 200 ...do I need to be wary of the power from mic socket on icom ?

    also goin to do the heil proset plus ..hc5/hc4 ..would like to change one and save one for the ft 95o , which element would /should I replace with electret and save for yaesu



    regards billy

    I've used Heil on many different radios. Choose the correct element correctly, and it will sound pretty good.
