Kenwood MC-60a

Kenwood MC-60a

To compliment the Kenwood TS-850, I have also purchased a Kenwood MC-60A desk microphone which has a communication type dynamic and unidirectional moving coil microphone element.

The MC-60A has a rocker-style switch on the top of the base for the UP and DOWN tuning of compatible Kenwood transceivers. A pre-amp is also built into the base and powered directly from the transceiver.

I most often use this particular microphone and it’s also fair to say I purchased the MC-60A as a piece of nostalgia. As mentioned on my first shack page, my first radio, a Kenwood TS-430 was paired with a MC-60A at the time of it’s purchase.
