So, I have a Kenwood TM-V61 and love the large hand mic since I have large paws. I also have a chance to but a brand new Ft-8800 and wonder if anyone knows if the switching mics would work, and if not, what issues I may have. I'm kinda tired of how small, and "boxy" Icom and Yaesu mobile mics fit and feel in my hand, and now that I tried the Kenwood, well,...

Thanks,
Greg

   I switched mikes on a few rigs by just swapping the innards!  I even put the insides of a modern mike into a 50 year old D-104!!  Roll Eyes

Its a thought. Just wondered if the innerds and the numeric keypads buttion (plus the function buttone on the sides of both) would be compatible. 2 different size mics. Wonder if the electronics would accept the competitors innerds.
