Hi all. I am curious about the little dynamic compressor kits sold out of Germany to go inline with the hand mic of an FT-817 or similar style Yaesu radios. http://www.box73.com/product/4  I know that compressors are generally not used when operating on satellite transponders, but I was wondering if given only 5 watts output (or less) it might not be useful. If anyone has any experience using one on these on the linear birds, I would like to hear about your experience. Did you use a stock Yaesu hand mic with it, headset or what? How did it perform, etc.? Replies on or off list welcome.

If anyone has one that would like to part with, I would be interested as well! =^)

73, Kevin N4UFO
