Apart from VHF, UHF and 27meg marine radios I haven't been around the AM seen for a very long time.
Finding the AM a buzz again and enjoying playing around with SSB but whats the advantage of astatic mics and when using this particular mic do you have turn your mic gain down on your radio? or just turn the astatic mic down?

Its been said before and it holds true that a mic needs to be matched to your voice/radio and operating environment , also what sounds good to you may not always sound good to someone else.
If you choose an amplified mic like the d104, I would recommend adjusting the radios mic gain at full and then slowly adjusting the d104, you wont need much on most radios from the d104, they are plenty sensitive. This way you can then meter the amount of audio off the face of your radio.
You may also wish to look into Turners line,such as the +3 if a desk mic is what your after.
Best of luck and enjoy your radio's
P.S. i would also advise if you dont already have one to invest in a wattmeter that has an "audio out" headphone jack, this is a great tool to monitor your out going audio and helps you make adjustments to any microphone so you can hear what you sound like rather than relying on someone elses tastes and ears.
