Heil PR20UT is £85 from Micsdirect UK, and thats with a long XLR lead, spit cover and carry pouch too.

WAY cheaper than even a used MC60. You can get a cheap boom stand for £30 too.

I use an ISK stand - prewired with the XLR and plenty of spare cable to reach the rig.

Foot switch is a £3 'Tattoo Machine Foot Switch' from eBay. Just solder on a Phono Plug and you are good to go.

Do NOT try the many guitar pedals out there like the Yamaha I bought first - its a darned momentary push to BREAK in there you cannot modify.

HTH?

I use the HM-PRO that Flex sells as well as the cable for it from Flex. I have had very good reports and seem to match up very well with the 3000.

At the end of day - its how you SET UP THE AUDIO that matters, not so much the element you feed it with.

Listen to yourself on another radio with headphones, try that radio with filters open, and then again how others typically run them.

On the 590 that I use for monitoring, I set low cut to 100Hz, and high cut to 2800Hz - thats fairly typical for most ham receivers.

The Heil Mics like PR20 have a fairly flat response, and it will sound bass heavy with most male vocals on the Flex3000.

So open up that 10band EQ and play - maybe boost the 1-4kHz region, and roll off gradually as you increase freq. Its a good start.

You want intelligability - and I see a lot of waterfalls with a thick line near the spot frequency and nothing in the midrange - bass heavy and hard to copy.

Try and get the midrange/top up in strength, add some compression (DX about 4 works well) - and that will get you heard.

Avoid excess bandwidth for DX contacts, you want that energy INSIDE the typical window that others will be listening - normally <3kHz wide.

Anything outside that is wasted and will effectively reduce your output.

From experience, in the pileups its not how strong your signal, its how loud and clear it appears, is what gets the contact.

A well adjusted EQ, bandwidth and compression on this rig can make any mic sound pretty good.

And with that 'full' audio comes higher average power output of course - like a small linear but costs you nothing but a little time

The last post is right. I remember a while ago I brock a pile up. The guy said the only reason he called me back was that my audio was so clean and clear. Other than that I would sound like all the rest.
