The Yaesu MD200 desktop microphone is designed for the latest generation of Yaesu HF transceivers it uses a studio-quality Polyethylene Teraphthalate Film Dynamic element, optimized for high fidelity SSB operation.
A Variable Side Pressure Control allows the operator to adjust the frequency response of the microphone, from a totally flat response to a high-articulation response with moderate peaking about 2000 Hz. The VSPC technique provides this response control without the distortion and reduced signal-to-noise ratio that can accompany active “equalizer” circuits.
You can also add in a Dynamic, Magnetic or Crystal microphone element, allowing A-B selection of the supplied dynamic element and the custom element. A slide switch on the base of the mic allows easy switching. This mic also has up-down scanning and transmit LED that are supported by most Yaesu radios.
The MD-200A8X is constructed using a heavy-duty aluminum die-cast base and support frame, with a rubber shock absorber for the mic element housing to dampen low frequency vibrations. The mic cable terminates to an Yaesu 8 pin mic plug.
