Good Looking Mic  Time owned: more than 12 months
Audio is really light, probably impedance issue. Other oldies in use, this one keeps dust off my shelf.

EXCELLENT  Time owned: 6 to 12 months
As a collector of old microphones, I recently wired this beauty (Black and chrome)to my Kenwood TS-570SG, and have had nothing but great reports on SSB. To get the requirred drive from the mic, I have to run the processor at 15. I also use the transmit EQ on "BB". I use the Shure 444D as well as a Heil GM-5 on this radio, but its just great fun to get equally good reports on this oldie but goodie that normally sits in an enclosed glass display case.
