My custom design modernizes your old Astatic D-104
Design supports G stand, UG8, TUG8, TUG8, TUP9

This kit is the direct wired one that bypasses the amp board and needs no 9V battery - ham radios only that have voltage on the mic connector (check your manual) 

I've been experimenting with MANY headsets over the last years, I had previously used a Heil headset til now. 

This element far exceeds mic specs for optimum use with todays radio technology.   I designed this application for a direct solder in replacement that brings Hi-Fi audio and new life to my old amplified D-104.  I now have this available for the D-104 for the following stands:  G, UG8, T-UG8, T-UG9, T-UP9.  This is an electret mic replacement that will be powered by your radio's mic connector with the amp board removed (please see radio list below). 

Upgrade your old classic and get good audio reports!!!
