Using one on a Uniden 980ssb and did not do any modifications to the microphone. Running it at 4-5 will produce 90% modulation and will peak at 98-100% on a very loud whistle. Anything over 7 will produce extreme squeal through talkback. I have received many compliments on the sound of my radio. Thought about upgrading but why fix what isn’t broken?

For the price and functions this one of the best microphones you can buy...the price is great buy.
Using one on a Uniden 980 SSB and I’m using it unmodified and it works great I run it at about a 4-5 setting for great modulation. Great cheap replacement mic.
This is a good mic, there is a mod where you short a resistor to add extra audio. First, you don't have to remove the resistor, just sodder across the contacts on the trace side of the board with a blob of sodder. If you run across the mod that suggests to change out a second resistor don't. Just shorting out the one resistor will be louder than most mics on the market. I think the audio is better than anything I can find on the market and is about the cheapest too. If you don't mod the mic it is slightly better than a stock mic. But remember, if you add that much audio to a stock radio it will squeal like a pig, you can fix that by turning the AMC all the way up or have Copper do it. It's part of the standard peek and tune.

For the price and for what it is.. It works very well surprisingly.. Great budget microphone
