INRAD, a division of Vibroplex® LLC, enters our 34th year of offering quality accessories for the active Amateur Radio enthusiast. From our beginnings as Fox-Tango many years ago offering aftermarket crystal filters, we have designed and marketed many transceiver modification kits, crystal and mechanical filters and other items over the decades. Today, we use our expertise to offer a new line of desk microphones and accessories for everyday Amateur Radio operation.
The current line consists of 5 desk microphones, each with a dynamic element unique to the specific model, table stand with microphone clip, and adapters for connection to Kenwood, Elecraft, Yaesu, 8 pin Ten-Tec, FlexRadio, modular Yaesu and modern 8 pin Icom transceivers. Hand and footswitches for PTT operation also available.
Additional information on each microphone can be viewed by clicking the More Details tabs at the bottom of the page. Each INRAD microphone is supplied with a 3 pin XLR to 1/8″ mono cable, which is in turn connected to your HF transceiver with an appropriate adapter.
Headsets with boom microphones and communications grade headphones to be released later in 2017 by INRAD. Watch this space for more information on these in the future.
The INRAD microphone line will be available for purchase for the first time, with all items in stock, at the 2017 Dayton Hamvention on May 19-21. See the Vibroplex® / INRAD booth at 1607-1609 in building 1.
M629 is a stylish microphone delivering full sounding SSB audio, one of the 2 flagships of the INRAD line. Tailored for modern HF radios like the Icom 7300. A brilliant cardioid dynamic element unique to this model with excellent frequency response. They’ll think you’re running an expensive German mic into the rig. $79.
M628 is the budget counterpart to the M650, using a similar cardioid dynamic element with 40 Hz – 15 kHz response, metal frame and element ball hood. Clean, clear SSB audio from your HF transceiver. Nice audio at a nice price. $59.
M650 is our line-leading counterpart to the M629. Featuring a unique cardioid dynamic element with a response pattern similar to the M628 and M686, this microphone has the classic ball hood with an internal breath screen. Robust, full-sounding SSB transmit audio for all modern HF transceivers. $79.
M686 is a cousin to the M629 and M650, with excellent transmit audio response from a cardioid unidirectional dynamic element. Black metal frame, modern squared-off hood over element with internal breath/windscreen included. $69.
M665 features a retro chrome look reminiscent of the classic Shure 565. Superb audio response utilizing a cardioid dynamic unidirectional element with brightened mid-range. Built-in spherical breath and pop filter on the element. $69.
Each INRAD microphone is supplied with a 3-pin XLR to 1/8″ mono connection cable standard. Mic adapters are available with three connectors, 1/8″ mono female for mic connection, 1/4″ mono female for PTT hand or footswitch, microphone connection to radio. $14.95.
Special limited time introductory offer: Purchase any INRAD microphone, and receive the rig adapter of your choice for only a penny more. Offer subject to expiration without notice. A $14.95 value!
How the mic adapter works: The supplied microphone cable, XLR to 1/8″ mono, is plugged into the 1/8″ female mono jack on the adapter. The 1/4″ female jack is for connecting a Push-To-Talk footswitch or handswitch. Without a PTT footswitch or handswitch, the radio can be used in VOX mode. Mic jack on adapter plugs into the microphone jack on your transceiver.
