Re: {Collins} Info wanted on SM-80 Mic



Jerry is correct about the SM-80 being associated with the HF-80 series of equipment. I have used both the SM-280 and SM-80 mics in a A-B comparison on-the-air test and I prefer the SM-280 for SSB QSOs. The HF-80 is a more restricted element apparently for more severe communication environments and one of those conditions is the fan noise that the HF-80 emits. On the other hand, I do not get bad noise reports using the SM-280 so go figure.

Lee,

The SM-80 complemented the HF-80 series equipment. I suspect that the mic is similar or the same in characteristics to the SM-280. I've seen photos but have not had the opportunity to work with the SM-80. However, I can tell you from personal experience that an SM-280 works appropriately with my HF-80 system.

I recently picked up an SM-80 mic.  It appears to be identical to the
SM-280. Anyone know anything about the SM-80 mic and how it differs from the
SM-280.  A web search provided no information.

Thanks.
