Heheheheh! I sold my TS-440sat a couple years back and kept the then 8
year old Corsair 1 because it was a better "radio" (the TS-440 was a MUCH
better toy loaded with bells and whistles, though!). That action drove the
local Kenwood Freaks NUTS!

Hmmm... I've never really been happy with any of the microphones I've run
across for the Corsair. Right now I have a real old Yaesu microphone on
it. I bought a HEIL element to slip into a D-104 but the impedance was
6K and the Ten Tec wants >30K or so (high impedance) and I've never been
able to find a suitable transformer, not that I've LOOKED too hard :-)

Did you find the EV 638 at a swap or buy one new?
