What's Included with the 588AT
TEN-TEC 707 Microphone and Stand w/T8 Cable Included
The best sounding microphone TEN-TEC has offered yet for Amateur Radio, and possibly the best sounding one available from anyone today!

The model 707 Regal desk microphone. As seen for the first time at the 10th annual TEN-TEC factory hamfest in September!
The best sounding microphone TEN-TEC has offered yet for Amateur Radio, and possibly the best sounding one available from anyone today!
Regal incorporates a unique dynamic element designed for a well-rounded, pleasing to the ear sound for transmitted audio. Housed in a classic retro-style case, this quality microphone can be used with virtually any modern HF transceiver which uses a dynamic microphone input. The Regal is not designed to work with older TEN-TEC transceivers or other radios that require an electret style microphone input.
Regal consists of a chromed housing with 2 position ‘PTT’ slider switch with OFF and LOCK positions, foam breath screen and a dynamic microphone element. The element has tailored frequency response from 50 Hz to 16 kHz designed for excellent transmit audio in SSB, AM, and FM modes.
The underside of the Regal has a 4 pin male XLR jack and a threaded connection for attaching the microphone to accessory model 716 base. A connection cable wired for 4-pin TEN-TEC, 8 pin TEN-TEC (also used by Yaesu), 8 pin Kenwood (also used by Elecraft) or 8 pin Icom is required to plug the 707 into your transceiver. One connection cable for your HF rig is provided free of charge with the purchase of the microphone.
The slider switch on the front of the mic is for ‘PTT’ operation. Slide the switch up to transmit, slide the switch down to return to receive.
The microphone element in the Regal is always ‘live’ for VOX operation. For VOX operation on a TEN-TEC transceiver, activate the VOX circuitry and then speak into the microphone. It is not necessary to move the ‘PTT’ slider switch on the mic to the upward ‘transmit’ position.
The microphone is priced at a very low $139 and includes one transceiver connecting cable of your choice at no additional charge. The Regal includes a carrying case with foam die-cut inserts — also no additional charge!
A table stand, model 716, with 6” tall metal pipe for mounting the microphone is available as an accessory for $22.95. Additional cables for transceiver connection are available at $29.95 each. As always, no charge will be made to your credit card until the day the items are shipped to you. First come, first served on backorders – our initial production run of 500 units is selling quickly and we encourage you to place an order today to ensure you will have one of these fantastic new microphones as soon as possible.
Shipping status update as of December 3, 2009: The Regal 707 is shipping now from stock with cables available.
