Audio-Technica-AT2020-Microphone

I bought myself an Audio Technica AT2020 for my ham radio rig. I have the adapters and PTT(push to talk) button coming soon. The only thing weired about this mic is I had to but several adapters and cables to make it work plus a phantom power supply. Every ham and every website rates this mic 5 out of 5. Looks slick and when I tried it on my computer it sounded great. I will take pictures once its all setup and ready.

Its low-mass diaphragm is custom-engineered for extended frequency response and superior transient response.
