Need help with this mike. Bought it new, out of the box, and did not receive any info sheet on how to use it. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

Well, I'm not an expert, but it's just a standard DTMF microphone.

If by "how to use it" you are wondering how to the keypad, then that will likely be dependent on the station you are connected to. Generally, if you want to send DTMF tones to a radio, you just hold down the PTT switch and press the keys with your other hand. E.g., one of our local repeaters allows you to access an "echo test" with <#1>. In that case, you simply press the PTT switch, announce your call, and continue to hold town the transmit button while you hit the <#> key then the <1> key, and then say something. Ditto re keypress combinations to activate the IRLP link, etc.

Is that what you were asking?

The Icom HM118TN DTMF microphone is exactly that.  A DTMF microphone.  All you can do with it is send DTMF tones.  And as with the stock micrphone you can use the UP/DN buttons to change frequency, or send CW as a paddle (MENU CONFIGURABLE).

I chose it only for repeater (6/10 meter) operation, and didn't expect much more from it.  I do like the large size, and seems to have a little more puch on HF than the stock microphone.

It would be nice to do direct frequency entry!  If you decide to buy any more ICOM accessories, don't buy the UT-102.  It is terrible at best compared to other voice synthesizers.

This HM118TN mic came with my older 706. I received horrible audio reports saying RF in audio on SSB. Seemed to work fine on FM. Purchased a modular jack and plugged in my SM8...Problem solved! I do not recommend this hand mic for older original IC 706's. May work fine on the 706 MKIIG, but if you own a first gen 706....Stay away.
