Nice to have the cord from the mike and 50 yards of reach  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
Hi

Being a CW/SSB ham with limmeted space in the shack, I only use handmikes.
As I often am building and doing things just out of range of my microphone and rig.
I found this DECT operated wireless speaker mike a very pleasing thing to find.
It is meand to be used with a 6 pin President/Uniden/Bearcat rig and will not fit a ham rig without replugging the mike and often even suplly DC power between of 9V Dc to the controller as most ham rigs will not be able to supply the needed DC voltage and milliamps to this mike through the original mike cord , as the CB rigs wich this mike was thought for are able to do this.

I find plugging a mike easy as I already pluffed over a hundred mikes from all brands to all kinds of rigs.

Also the mike is developed for President/Uniden/Bearcat CB rigs, this mike is fine for dynamic microphoned rigs Like most Kenwood and Yaesu Hf rigs.

i am using it on an Icom that normaly has a electret mike as standard, for the Icoms the audio level out is a bit on the tight low side.
TX audio is good a bit sharp , but very decent comunications quality.

audio for the speaker mike is done by a 3.5 mm jack cable and is suplied even as the mini USB charger cable even with a 12V DC cigarette lighter USB charger for both 12V and 24V cars or trucks.
The fun thing is that this audio cable alows me to use a websdr for recieving and the rig as TX.

So if wireless is a needed option for your hamming this is a good alternative, the reach of this DECT mike is about 50 yards easy.

See in this 3 part you-tube review how the mike functions on a original President rig.
