Hi everyone
I've got a ss6900 but the Mic is terrible so I'm looking to upgrade. If I change it to what we use to call a power mic, would I need to back the rig down or can I plug and play?

The standard mic on these radio's are a bit crap Gary. Give Knights a call and he'll sort you out.

The first one on here will do fine, but if you want a decent power mic then try this,

KPO NM-532 Power Mic -- You'll find it here https://www.kcb.co.uk/contents/en-uk/d49.html

Tel: (01652) 648378

I agree, I use the K-PO NM532 power mike on my SS 6900n and its great. Always get positive feedback on a 5 audio.


Never ever used the supplied standard mike, went straight for the K-PO which I ordered at the same time as the SS 6900n. Bought a Cobra M75 power mike a couple of months ago, but been told on a AB comparison that the K-PO has the better audio.


Don't forget to adjust the Mic Gain setting on the 6900's menu to suit the K-PO.
