Using ICOM commercial microphones on the V8000 amateur radio

Post by Kraftwerk1976 » Thu Aug 12, 2004 5:31 pm

Does anyone know if the ICOM commercial radio microphones will work with the IC-V8000 amateur radio? I would like to replace the HM-133 mic. with a less costly mic...that way, if I break the cheaper microphone, I won't feel as bad, hehe. If it will work, what are the model numbers? Thanks.

I have indeed noticed the fairly cheap HM-118 that has NO touchtone (that is fine with me), but everywhere I look, nobody has it for sale. Well, they have the HM-118TN, which has the touchtone pad, but I don't want/need that one.

Icom mics...

The Icom HM118 mics work fine on the amateur radios as long as the radio has an RJ45 mic jack. Their performance, just like the HM133, is mediocre at best for audio qualiity, IMHO.
