Greetings Everyone!

I'd like to get a desk mic for my recently-acquired Icom IC-910H, which is probably at least 10+ years old.  The Icom SM-20 was a recommended option back when this transceiver was made, but that mic has since been supplanted by the SM-30.  Will the SM-30 also be compatible with this rig?  I would assume so, as they're both electret condenser mics, but I'm also aware that Icom is unique in how they handle mic inputs due to earlier transceivers having mic pre-amps in the mic itself versus the pre-amp being contained within the transceiver in later models...or is it the other way around?

Any feedback would be appreciated.  Thanks.  7 3

I have a Non-Pro Icom and having gone through an SM-6 - SM-8, SM-10 (not bad at all) and now with the Heil iCM, I can easily recommend the Heil.  Great reports on audio and easy to set up using just the mike controls in the radio.  And for $120 (often less from the dealers) it is hard to beat.

Just make sure you get the iCM which is made specifically for our type radios.
