FLEX, I see a 1/8 jack for Microphone connection. So my Heil 781 will have to have adapter to mate the XLR to that 1/8 jack. Or is HEIL going to make a new Microphone. I think my Behringer ULTRAGAIN PRO Mic 2200 will have to go away, also my Jabber remote microphone will have to go away. 4 years with a FLEX 6500 Now I start all over again. BUT I have stuff to sell at the next Ham fest.
Now the clock ticks on my 6600 to be delivered.
I would, however recommend two things.. 1) use right angle connectors to reduce torque strain on the rig's jack. 2) avoid simply using an adapter instead of a new connector or pigtail adapter -- for the same reason.
Bose uses the same arrangement used by David Clark on their helicopter headset/mic.
Removing a cover, inserting a connector in the rear panel,(threaded body) screwing on a washer and the nut, should be easy enough to do. No soldering required! Neat and much better than adapters hanging off the back of a desk putting strain on the 1/8 connector.
This isn’t hard folks. Took half an hour including time for a couple contacts and a beer.
