Kyp,

I know my Shure 57 does really well on my Guitar amps, I don't see why it wouldn't work for doing radio audio.

Frequency response: 40 to 15,000 Hz

I think it will cover your range... :wink:

If you go through the Mic input, you are running through the radio's preset microphone filtering.

It will roll-off everything your are trying to do to inprove your audio, and do it's best to keep you sounding like a DX'er... and we can't allow that!

Try running it through the ACC jack.

I roam 75M looking for the VooDoo Audio and [true] ESSB guys, but most of the time I'm at 3933MHz . Like most groups on 75M, can be a tough crowd, but great bunch of guys--no they're not into TRUE ESSB....but like "nice" audio nonetheless. Good info, thanks... You on late in the evenings?

I would got through the ACC Jack.

If nothing else, you well by-pass all of the audio filters the the mic input has to offer.

Thanks Mike.

I have the Factory Service manual, You can see it here:

I have never gotten into the theory behind RF equipment, so this is a big learning curve for me...

Thanks a lot for your help!

I know, mentioning 11 meters on a ham band may be the wrong way to start, but sideband ops tend to know how to operate a radio and act on the air. I am a...
