Hi everyone.....

A couple years ago there was an article in a QST magazine, showing a ham's homebrew microphones.  
He has a web site showing the mics he's made and I had the page bookmarked....until I lost my hard drive.

Does anyone know the ham's call letters, so I can find his web site??  

Thanks!

From a search of the ARRL web site, the article appeared in the December, 2003 QST.  Maybe your local library has it, or you can order the back issue from ARRL.  The author's last name was "Kennedy"

That ought to get you started anyway.

Wow!  You guys are great!!!   And fast too!

Thanks a bunch for helping me out.   I have the mic built and working great...usuing a Radio Shack electet thingy.  I needed some ideas on what to use for a case.  

By the way,  I made eight contacts last night on 75 and 160 and everyone said my audio sounded fine.  When I told them I was using a homebrew mic, they were skeptical.....until they remembered seeing the article in QST.

If anyone is interested in a simple winter-time project that costs less then $5....and can be built in less than an hour.....this is it!  

73 to all and maybe I'll hear you on 75 or 160 one of these nights.
