What is the best way to switch 2 mic's and 2 radios?

I have two Heil microphones and want to switch between my Flex and Yaesu radios.

I've looked at the Focusrite 4i4 and audio Mixer and I don't think either one of these is the best solution.

Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

    How about just a simple XLR switch? Like this one from Amazon:

    Actually, that one is for only one mic. I think that they have a selection of these devices that probably will include a 2 x 2.

    Hi Dan, Our own Lynn, KU7Q has a really cool set of devices that are designed to connect multiple devices to multiple radios. This might be what you are looking for.

    Can you clarify exactly what you want to do?

    Like this?

    Condition A Mic1--> Radio1 Mic2--> Radio2

    Condition B Mic1--> Radio2 Mic2--> Radio1

    How about an audio mixer board? A stereo one would have two outputs (L&R) each of which could go to another radio.

    Not as big a concern with radios I guess, but would provide a proper impedance load at all times to the radios, instead of possibly shorting mike contacts when switching between the two.
