How does one use the 6K front panel mic with the Maestro. 

After a long hike to a mountain peak and setting up the Maestro and 6500 I was all set for some 20 meter SSB. The kit included only the foster mic and I couldn't figure out how to activate this mic input.  I was using the Maestro speaker but thought that routing setting was only for receive sound. Should I have set the sound from the radio and then the speaker / mic would be 'hot' in the radio.

While the radio is in SSB mode, push the TX MENU button (Mic/PWR knob) and select R-MIC on the left hand side. The R- selections are on the Radio
