As a follow-up to George's post, does the Heil adapter for Icom rigs
include the capacitor?  Curious about this because I recently bought an
Icom 775 with my oldTS-930 now being a back-up rig.  I also purchased
the Heil Icom adapter and assume it has the necessary capacitor.  But I
also know what is said of assume ( it makes an "ass" out of "u" and
"me").  BTW, I have to run theMIC gain a might on the high side for
adequate drive which makes me suspicious but have gotten several
unsolicited comments about "good audio).
