Alcon,

I recently purchased what was described as a YD-844A Desk Mic with a 4 pin connector from fleabay. Unfortunately when it arrived, it did not have the 4 pin connector, but rather an 8 pin. Has anyone wired one of these microphones? My current theory is to get one of these connectors http://www.americanradiosupply.com/4-pin-ham-cb-radio-microphone-connector/. I have the FT101ZD (the radio I have) manual, and I highly doubt there are more than 3 wires inside the mic loom, but can you foresee any complications before I start down this path?

I've also referenced this site http://homepage.ntlworld.com/rg4wpw/date.html for more details on the potential for the wiring.

Thanks in advance,
Zach

The 4-pin circular (Foster) connector for microphones is very common.
Your local Radio Sheck likely has that 4-pin microphone connector in their parts bins.

The YD-844 desk top microphone and the mobile microphone was available from Yaesu in high and low impedances, using a shielded microphone cable terminating into a 4 pin microphone connector for use with the FT-101 or a 3 prong 1/4 inch stereo type jack for use with the FL-101 transmitter .
