Hi Rick

What I did here when my Heil headset crapped out was to get a pair of 
Radio Shack cordless headphones.  I took the boom mic off and put some 
Velcro on the part that connected to the headphones and some on the 
headphones.  Now when I want to use the mic, I just stick it on the 
'phones with the Velcro.  Works and sticks good and when I want to 
operate a CW contest, I just take the mic off and put it aside until 
it's needed again.  Works good!  73
