I am interested in adapting my Yaesu MD-200A8X microphone for use with the Maestro Model B. It doesn't appear to connect using the telephone-like jack. How do I adapt this microphone for use with the Maestro Model B?
Had similar problem with 6700/Maestro and a Yaesu M100 which are the same pinouts.
The trouble was that 6700/Maestro does not provide sufficient power for the microphone.
Solution was a Yaesu power adapter for that microphone. This solved the issue and worked perfectly
I’m aware that other microphones also require more power.
