MD-200A8X Ultra-High-Fidelity Desktop Microphone
Desktop Microphone designed for Base Station operation with the latest generation of Yaesu HF Transceivers, including those with VHF/UHF capability.

Microphone features a red TX LED which glows when transmitting.

Note: Not ALL transceivers will support the TX LED feature.

Will work with:

  • FT-DX 9000 Series
  • FT-DX 5000 Series
  • FT-2000
  • FT-950
  • FT-450
  • FT-897D
  • FT-857D
Designed especially for ultra-low distortion and the highest fidelity, the MD-200A8X includes a new-technology "Variable Side Pressure Control" (VSPC), which allows precise adjustment of the microphone's audio response without resorting to "active" equalisation circuits that can introduce distortion and/or degrade signal-to-noise ratio.

The Exceptional Fidelity of the MD-200A8X is realised through the use of a high-quality Polyethylene Terephthalate Dynamic Element, which provides wide dynamic range.

Using the VSPC control, "Hi-Fi" (totally flat), "DX" (additional "brightness" in the high-frequency range), or intermediate frequency responses can be set up.

Versatile, the MD-200A8X includes provision for the installation of a user-supplied Dynamic, Magnetic, or Crystal microphone element, which then can be selected via a convenient slide switch on the microphone's base.

Isolation; the MD-200A8X microphone's housing is suspended in a solid metal yoke with a shock-absorbing rubberised ring, to absorb low-frequency vibrations that can ruin fidelity and rob power from desired frequencies.

Note: the MD-200A8X's head cannot be operated without the base.

Convenient Switches for PTT and scanning activation are located on the solid aluminium die-cast base.
