I bought a year ago on eBay nice inexpensive headset called "Genius" with
excellent mike. It was cheap like 30 something bucks. Guy selling them with
a particular adapter for any transceiver.  Much much better, lighter then
Heil Pro, forget about.
Cant remember the name of that guy but it is possible to google him.
