If you want to just listen to the FT-60R w/o using a microphone, what are some of you all using as an ear piece to plug into the MIC/SP jack on the side of the radio?Thanks Randy, KA4AQM

Many of the "traditional" handheld speaker-mica have a 1/8" (3.5mm) mono
jack on the bottom, into which you can plug a regular ole earpiece.

Thanks Cliff, but really want only an earpiece to listen and not to speak. Any other idea?

If Kline still has them, their quality is better. Otto Engineering is about the best available.

The first URL is a light-duty unit ... the second one a bit beefier.
