Aside from the complete DMS Desk Microphone System, INRAD microphones, the DMS-1 PTT stand and other accessories are also available as individual items.
The M-series microphones and the DMS-1 PTT locking base have received an enthusiastic review in the January 2018 issue of QST magazine. Read the complete review here. The review summary: "An excellent audio signal from a reasonably-priced, high-quality microphone."
The M-series microphone line consists of 5 different microphones, each with a dynamic element unique to that specific model. Accessories include the DMS-1 PTT stand and its DM-series detachable coiled rig cables, model M605 non-PTT table stand with microphone clip, hand (M-HS) and foot (M-FS) switches, and M-series mic jack adapters for connection to 8 pin Kenwood/Elecraft, 8 pin Yaesu/Ten-Tec/FlexRadio, modern 8 pin Icom, and RJ-45 modular Yaesu.
The DMS-1 PTT stand includes the base with standpipe and mic clip, and a short 3 pin XLR to 1/8" mono cable to plug the mic into the base. The DM-series coiled detachable cables for 8 pin Icom, 8 pin Elecraft/Kenwood, 8 pin Yaesu/Ten-Tec and RJ-45 modular Yaesu to connect from the base to the transceiver are also sold as a separate item and are required to use the DMS-1 with your transceiver.
Complete technical and descriptive information on each microphone can be viewed by clicking the More Details tabs at the bottom of the page. Each INRAD microphone is supplied with a 3 pin XLR to 1/8" mono cable, which is in turn connected to your HF transceiver with an appropriate adapter.
To use INRAD microphones without the DMS-1 PTT stand: M-series microphones are supplied with a cable 6.5 feet long with 3 pin XLR on one end, and 1/8" male mono on the other end. Using one of the M-I, M-K, M-Y, M-YM adapters, connect the 1/8" male mono mic plug to the 1/8" female receptacle on the adapter. The second 1/4" female receptacle is for a PTT hand or footswitch. Without a PTT switch, the microphone can be used in VOX mode on your HF transceiver.
