You'd best forget it. The impedance of the 444 is too high for the Yaesu. Will it work? Maybe, but you won't like the audio quality.

If the Shure mike is dual impedance, it will work just fine and dandy on your Yaesu.  I use one with my FT1000 MKV and have been told by many my signal sounds fine.  If you email me (VE7ABC@RAC.CA, I'll look for the instuction sheet I've got and scan it and then email it to you.  You will have to of course make some type of adapter up.

The pfd file is on the web in several places,this is
a good time to learn how to use your search engine.
Took 2 minutes.
Download the WebFerret search engine it seems to find
things other don't.

If it's _not_ dual-impedance, your local music store should have little impedance-matching transformers -- about 100 kOhms to 600 ohms.

I haven't tried one on a high-impedance mic, but it will certainly improve things, and may be "just right".
