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.

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