Yaesu M-70 Microphone
Desktop microphone with electret (condenser) capsule, PTT/lock, filter, cable
The perfect match for your transceiver! The Yaesu M-70 desktop microphone is designed for the majority of large and small Yaesu transceivers and offers very good voice quality and good features.
Which microphone suits my operating style?
When choosing a microphone, you should consider several aspects
- the frequency range of the actual microphone capsule (hi-fi or narrow DX modulation),
- the comfort of use (equaliser and preamplifier yes/no),
- the exact match to the transceiver.
For the friends of sonorous Hifi modulation Yaesu offers the microphones M-1 and M-100. These microphones contain two switchable microphone capsules and thus support QSO with full modulation with a wide bandwidth, but also the DX or contest connection where maximum intelligibility is important. The top-of-the-range M-1 microphone also offers a built-in equaliser, an LC display, voice pickup and much more.
The M-70 is a table microphone designed for everyday use. It is also suitable for radio amateurs who do not use it every day, but for whom a simple handheld microphone is not enough and too uncomfortable. The M-70 offers a frequency response of 30 - 17000 Hz, which is adapted to radio communication. A switchable high-pass filter limits the frequency response to 340 Hz in the lower range.
The M-70 fits almost all Yaesu transceivers of the last years, see technical data. The universal microphone cable allows the use of transceivers with RJ-45 socket as well as transceivers with 8-pin round socket (so-called 'Foster' plug). Some older transceivers require an additional power supply unit; with more modern radios, the microphone is supplied via the radio.
Older radios which require an additional power supply:
FT-747, FT-840, FT-850, FT-990, FT-1000
