  1. Purchased for use with OMNI VII

    Posted by Kd5spx on 10th Nov 2014

    Compared with the TT-709 mic this mic has lower overall gain. I decided to use the TT-709 mic instead of the TT-708 mic with my OMNI since it provided a fuller and more powerful punch. I will keep the TT-708 for future use since it will also work with my Yaesu units.

    I did contact service which verified the lower output compared to the 709 and recommended TX EQ of -16 with rolloff at 300 and top at 3000 for best settings.

    Appreciate the info. Thanks again.


  2. GREAT MIKE AT A GOOD PRICE

    Posted by John Philips, WI4P on 27th Mar 2014

    The 708A desk mike is a pleasure to use and I get great reports using it with my Ten-Tec Eagle. It's heavy enough to stay anchored in place on my desk and the sculptured toggle switch is very smooth and easy to use.


  3. I BOUGHT THE RIGHT MICROPHONE!

    Posted by Richard Schmidt on 7th Oct 2013

    Been a ham since 1961. Always CW and bought Omni 7 and Centurion amplifier to enjoy that sweet QSK. Great equipment and worth every penny. Decided I need to operate some SSB before I finish my tour of duty here on earth. Bought the 708A mic for two reasons: (1) it is from Ten-Tec and will be reliable (2) it is designed to go with my Omni 7. It arrived and I opened the box - WOW! Built like a battleship and looks great. Reports on air have all been very good. Once again I put this question to you: why buy anything else when you can get Ten-Tec? Its just like they say about buying a Filson wool coat: "Might as well have the best".


  4. Looks good, sounds good

    Posted by Chuck Kershner, W1EMQ on 17th Dec 2012

    Bought this mike as part of the "Get On The Air Now" package for a blue screen Jupiter in 2010 and got excellent audio reports, which is what counts from the other end. Now use this unit on a new Omni-VII with equally solid audio reports. The 3-position base switch and adjustable gooseneck are nice features along with the clean design. Add a 715 RF speech processor and you have an even more powerful and potent audio signal.


  5. Good reports...

    Your report at the other end is what counts. Been pleased to receive good comments about this mic.
