Re: HG M75 Mic questions

Biskinik , yes an amplified power mic will make your PA audio louder. Is that Cobra power mic a good one...NO.
Go with an Astatic D104 Mb6,Road Devil , or an RF Limited EC 2018.

Re: Upper and lower ssb combined?

What you hear through the talkback ,and what is transmitted to the receiving stations are NOT the same audio. I have found over the years my amplified mics are seeing more time on the shelf and the unamplified mics are getting V the most use and best reports.

Some of us locals around here have all talked on FM before. It's much more line of sight so not good for long distance without repeaters. But if you use the squelch FM sounds really good ,almost like talking on 2 meters.

Yea, I'd honestly rather use a more affordable Russian or Chinese crossover tube than spend the big bucks for NOS tubes. To me it's just not feasible to pay that per tube, especially to retube a 10 or 12 tube Phantom, you would be paying over $1000.00 to retubed an amp that is just a $350.00 dollar ...
