I finally got my 6400M on the air. I have been mostly listening since getting the radio about 4 weeks ago but all the while trying to get the mic to what to my ears was a reasonable sounding output. Today I got an excellent audio report from a very audio educated ham which included a recording of what I sounded like. Even I was impressed with how the mic sounded. It was definitely me, clear, clean and strong. The reason I am writing of this is there is no way this could have happened without this Community and the knowledge within. Thank you for being  there. I am now in a great place to start this journey!

Hi Richard
I am slow when I get new gear. It took me as long just to take the Yaesu FT DX 3K out of its box. I drive my ham buddies nuts!

Bob,  I have the 6600 and while I don't do much voice I have balanced line in through and external EQ.  I have literally had DX come back to me in a pileup saying:  The station with the great audio, WS7 come again...  

The radios can produce really great audio!

you can use the TX EQ built in the software, it does an excellent job, im sure a real EQ would have some more stuff, but ive had good luck with it!
