Hi Kelly and the gang:

I had an Argosy II, just sold it to buy a Corsair II.  I used a couple
of mikes with it, all worked just fine, never any problem at all.  I
used the Ten Tec 700 hand mike (best), I used the 215 electret mike
(nice audio, but not enough of it) and I may have tried a crystal
mike , I think that one got good reports also.

Just try out your mike there.  See what reports you get, you may be
surprised.  The Ten Tec hand mike is cheap and works well too.  Good
