The Yaesu M-1 Microphones have landed @ Martin Lynch and sons


The M-1 Reference Microphone is the ultimate, high-quality, innovative desktop microphone, dedicated to the most discriminating Ham Radio Operators. It features combined Condenser and Dynamic microphone elements.

Headphone jack for Audio monitoring

The M-1 Reference Microphone includes a 3.5mm headphone jack for Audio monitoring

Condenser Microphone Element

The Condenser Microphone Element produces greater frequency response and clear, crisp audio characteristics perfect for being heard on crowd bands and in big DX pile-ups, while the Dynamic Microphone Element delivers the rich low-mid tonalities, favoured for local QSOs. The response of each microphone element may be adjusted independently using the internal Nine (9) Band Graphic Equalizer. Each element has a separate volume control for independent adjustment of output levels. The output of each microphone may be selected separately, or they may be combined to produce the most pleasant tonality.

Nine (9) Band Graphic Equalizer

Both the Condenser Element and Dynamic Element in the M-1 utilize the Nine (9) Band Graphic Equalizer (63Hz, 125Hz, 250Hz, 500Hz, 1kHz, 2kHz, 4kHz, 8kHz, 16kHz). Each element’s frequency response is independently adjustable. Two (2) frequency response memories and a “through” mode

Innovative TBC (Treble Boost Cowling)

The supplied TBC (Treble Boost Cowling) enhances the voice response around the important 1 – 1.5kHz range. Attaching the cowling creates a condensed unique tonal texture that is pleasing for many.

Smooth and Comfortable Air-Cylinder Tube PTT

The PTT key uses three Air-Cylinder Tubes which afford a smooth and comfortable long keystone. The contactless magnetic switch ensures long-life and stable operation.

Recording and Playback with Voice Keyer

Recording and playback capability (20 seconds), to confirm the audio tonality. The recording and playback system also doubles as a simple voice keyer.

New 3D printer arriving soon!

The Printer….

So the new 3D printer arrives on Monday! Can’t wait! interested to know if it will have a heated plate, fingers crossed.. I’ve chosen the “Anycubic assemble Delta Rostock 3D printer Kossel” its a very good looking piece of kit, COME ON AMAZON!

  Only time will tell if this printer is any good, but I wanted something with a relatively small foot print, I will make a nice acrylic case for it to work in later. Mean while I need to bust out the 3D software, software of choice is 360 from Autodesk.. I’ve been using cad for best part of 16 years if not more and still love autodesk. However some of the other products around out there are truly amazing.. TINKERCAD is free to use online and is sooo cool..

The Plan….

I plan to be able to make my own cases and printed circuit boards, with the addition of a small light weight router head this might be able to engrave and cut small parts…
