I just got a TS-130SE but it did not come with a mic.  I was wondering what affordable (Under $30) mics are out there that you may have experience with.  I like the astatic d-104 but I am not sure if the impedance is too high.  The 130 manual says it will take a high or low impedance but I have read mixed reviews about that statement.  I don't mind a using a hand mic or a base mic.  Let me know your thoughts.

Thanks for the thoughts so far.  I am looking more at the d-104.  Herb, is there anything in particular to look for with the astatic or is it pretty much just "buy one and go from there"?

The MC-50 will work. If you find an old shure 444 or one like it, wire that up for your ol' Kenmore. If you could listen to them side-by-side on the receiving end, you would give the MC-50 away.

I am using a Turner 2 Plus 2 CB mike from my old Cobra CB and it works great. I have it turned almost all the way down. I have gotten good audio reports.
