Hi all,

I am considering a Kenwood MC-60 desk microphone for use on 2m & 70cm FM only.
Is this a good choice?, does anyone have this setup?, and ultimately will it sound better?

Cheers. 73s

Dave.

Depends on the rig!
As I recall the MC-60 is a competent, dynamic mic with 600 ohm impedance.  If you have one you could try it... I would not purchase one just for this use, though.

It should work just fine. Make sure you get the right one with the right pins. (4or8). A friend of mine has used his on a TS-460 on 6 meter FM and it sounds great.

Hello.
I use the Kenwood MC-60 with my TS2000, and on 2 metres FM I get good reports on audio quality.
Carefully setup the mic gain and processor settings first. About 50% on each setting seems to work for me.
Depends on how loudly you speak naturally Smiley
