Default Radio / microphone question.

Hi All

I have a King KY195B TSO radio. It uses a Telex 66T , amplified dynamic Microphone.

It works well, but I want to change the microphone to a boom mic. (This is in a
sailplane)

The question is whether an electret mic will work.

Any suggestions?

Only if you've got the little amplifier with it that converts the electret
mic to the aviation standard.

Speaking of amplified microphones...I was over at your web site and saw
the article from Oct. 1985 on using a transformer to convert a
commercial headset into one compatible for use in a plane.
(KP85OCT.PDF) I was thinking of doing this with a cheap active noise
cancelling headset.

The boom mike is the issue. Is there one available? I was looking for
something cheap to be used as a spare headset, or to be used by an extra
passenger in the plane.

Thanks,
Paul

The earphones have never been the problem; the microphones always a problem.
