Any relationship between EV and this mic is at least 40 years old, and 
no one who was there then still works for EV (and many are dead). Forget 
that connection. Ten Tec rigs, in general, work very well with almost 
any low impedance dynamic mic. See


for info on how to connect a pro dynamic mic to your ham rig. It's easy, 
requires no transformer, just proper wiring. And it works great! And 
almost any dynamic-type ham mic will work fine with Ten Tec. The Shure 
444 and 450 are very good choices. I've used the 444 with my Omni V. 
I've also used an EV RE16 and RE20. They're overkill, but great ham 
mics. An RE16 has been the only mic in my HF shack for five years.
