    Just wondering if the LD-11 comes with a microphone, and if not, what is the best one to get.


    Yes, it does come with a microphone.


    When you receive your radio and mic check it out. I received a large mic with a tightly coiled cord and a gold plated plug. The plug was too long and it put the rig into transmit each time I plugged it in. I made a paper washer to prevent inserting it fully. Then I was told I had a strong AC hum. I switched back to my LD-5 mic and both problems gone. I emailed LNR twice at their posted email but response. I finally cut the mic cord to replace the mic plug and when I exposed the wires there was NO shielding. The “shield” was a very few fine copper wires loosely wrapped around the PTT and mic wires. I can only assume that the AC hum was picked up from the two LED shack lights on goosenecks both about 12 inches from the transmitter and mic cable. You may not have any problem but be aware.

    The mic for the LD-5 looks just like my other MFJ microphones so one with the appropriate plug on it may work very well.

    I started this thread. A microphone came with the LD-11, as well as power cord and cables to get data out to the computer. If you have a problem with an order, I would recommend a phone call instead of email, as this is a small organization and staff is building stuff and filling orders with little or no time left to respond to email.


    Does anyone know what type of mic comes with the LD-11. Is it an electret?

    I am trying to use the LD-11 with a headset for windy SOTA sites and my current headset, I use with my FT857, has a dynamic mic so want to get the right headset mic for the rig.
