“In this video you will find information about the Heil HS2 handheld PTT switch that I use with my 2 Kenwood radios (TS-2000 and TS-990), thanks to the MFJ-1263. In addition, I’m talking about my visit this week at Radioworld in Toronto and my next trip to the Hamvention 2018. Thank you for watching and subscribing!

MFJ`s new MFJ-1263 Microphone Control Center lets you mix and match any two microphones to any two transceivers.
The microphones or transceivers can have 8-pin round or 8-pin modular connectors. You don`t have to change connectors or rewire; just push buttons. Your favorite microphones will never become obsolete.
You can use your favorite microphone with your present or new rig by pushing a button. You can instantly switch from a hifi ragchewing mic to a hard-hitting DX mic when a rare one suddenly pops up.
Plug in a boom mic/headset (MFJ-393) to save the day during noisy field day or multi-operator contesting.
You can plug in your headphones and an external speaker (MFJ-281).
A headphone volume control eliminates the need to readjust your rig`s volume when you switch the speaker on. The headphones are always active. A push button
turns the speaker on or off.
When you want to use your desk or hand mic just push a button.
An input jack and On/Off switch is provided to insert external audio into the microphone audio input line. Great for inputting sound card, SSTV, AFSK, TNC
and other audio sources.
The MFJ-1263 works with any radio –
– Kenwood, Yaesu, Icom, Alinco and compatible transceivers – using an 8-pin round or modular microphone jack. Internal jumpers configure the MFJ-1263 for your radio — your mics never become obsolete!
