I don't know what they are called, but they look like really old-fashioned radio mics but made for the desktop  they've been around for awhile.

What specs should I look for if I'm mic shopping for my IC-718 ?

Can't believe they're not made anymore....how hard would it be to modify it to work with a IC-718 you reckon?

Not hard.  You'll have to make sure that the D-104's impedance will match with the 718's input requirements.

Heil makes a D-104 insert with their very excellent mic element built in and they can help you match it to your rig.  You just by the outside part on eBay or whatever.

Do a forums search on D-104 for more info.  Been discussed many times.

D104 with a Heil 5 cartridge makes a good sounding mic...scrap the amp in the bottom, not needed...

    A company still makes a new D-104 look alike.  I saw it being sold on Copper.com

    BTW, it's called the Super Star "Silver Salute".  It looks quite like a D-104, except the head is angled instead of round.

Places like ebay are chock full of used D-104s these days...

Local CB shops, truckstops, etc. are also a source of used D-104s.

There are literally millions of them out there.
