If you buy a microphone from Knights (link below) and tell them which radio you have they will supply it ready-wired for your radio (complete with battery if you buy a power-mic).

Don't need a power mic, most of the time those who use them have them turned up too much and it just makes them sound awful. If you're DXing you especially don't want to be using one.

Had an Optima a few years back. I bought an 8 pin Icom mic. The radio is wired the same as Icom's with 8 pin socket. Worked a treat.

You can't be far from Neil CT388 - if you have a look at the Southern SSB Net thread you'll see it's fairly busy with people able to get on the air from home QTH although in normal times there would be a lot of people up on a hill to call in too.
