I am using a Heil GoldLine microphone with the Yaesu FT-1000MP MKV and a Yaesu MD-200 on my Yaesu FT-847.  I would like to use the Heil GoldLine with both radios.  This would also clean-up some clutter.  Is there a switch box availiable that would allow me to plug the box into each radio and output via a switch to the GoldLine?
Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Three pole double throw switch for switching the PTT, mic audio and ground from one rig to another, a box, some shielded wire and the appropriate connectors.  Make it yourself - should be easy.

Somebody makes a commercial box that does this, among other things, if you can't or don't want to make your own.  Good luck de kt8k - Tim

I use and recommend the Multi Switcher, made by New Communications Solutions.  It allows four inputs to be connected to 4 radios.  I use mine to connect a hand mic, headset mic, KAM and PSK/soundcard inputs to any of my four HF/VHF/UHF and QRP rigs.  It is well made and documented, and considering what it does, is a good value.  Levels are adjusted per input and per radio so once set up, you don't have to mess with the mic gain to switch modes or radios.  It routes your keyer too, so if you have a favorite memory keyer you can patch it to any of the four radios.  For a while they were using my station photo in their QST ad.
