Great Mic  Time owned: more than 12 months
Im in the navy and been stationed in Japan for 7 years. Adonis is their top of the line lines of after market amateur radio microphones there so my curiousity got me the AM-708. This is the top I believe in their hirearchy.

Its is a high quality desktop electret condenser microphone with built-in compressor amplifier. Up to two transceivers can be operated from the AM-708E by simply operating a slide switch. It is also equipped with a FM/SSB audio quality selector switch for optimum operation. There are two fixed levels of compression High (45db) and Low (35dB) plus a Manual position, where a compressor level volume control is activated. There is an \'on air\' indicator which lights up continuously when transmitting. The analogue meter acts as a battery checker and output level meter. Time out timer (2 to 3 minutes) with time reset function, when activated de-keys the transceiver and alarm sounds for up to 30 seconds (can be disabled).

I love this mic in mostly U/VHF use. Never ending compliments on the punch and penetrating frequencies it puts out. Really effective in SSB.

I am getting the Yaesu adapter cable for it to use it on my HF. Will let everyone know of the feedbacks I'll get.
