Re: {Collins} Heil Headsets for KWM-2



I'm aware that a high-Z mike is required, I use a SM-3 and D104 on my 32S-3
and 2A. I know Heil sells a high-z transformer which they claim works with
older tube radios but I'm looking for someone who has this setup and can
provide feedback on how well the headsets work with the collins radios.

Yes, the KWM-2/32S-x needs a high-Z mike.  I use several: Collins MM-1,
Collins SM-1, E-V 600E, and a D-104 with the UG8 base (not the low-Z UG9).

Hi guys.
It's an interesting topic.
I tried an old Telex headset, I read 600-1 plus 600 ohm on a side.
It's a low impedence microphone I believe, modulation level is so low on my 
KWM-2A

I need to buy another one.

Any suggestion?
