Great microphone
The MH-59A is an outstanding microphone and a great addition to my mobile setup. I am using it on my Yaesu FT-857D in my Honda Element. In my mobile setup, replacing the stock mic with this one has produced many unsolicited comments on the high quality of my audio. However, there is some configuring you must do to get your radio to use the mic and to make sure the audio is set at the right levels.

The very first thing you need to do is tell the 857 that you are using this mic. Before you plug in the mic for the first time, go to menu No-059 and change the setting from "NOR" to "RMT". This tells the radio that you are using the MH-59A and all of the features of the mic become available, such as the up/down buttons on the top of the mic.

Next, and probably the most important is the microphone gain settings. This microphone is a very hot mic. If you don't adjust it properly, your audio will be very distorted and unintelligible. For SSB, you need to perform the ALC adjustments that are in the radioâ
