Astatic D104 MicrophoneDV Dongle and Thumb DV for D-star

Many hams use dongles for “radio less” D-Star. These devices use the PC’s built in microphone and speakers.

A cool way as created by KC1RX Don in Florida ws to take his Astatic D104 microphone and refit it as a Dongle Mic by taking a external pc microphone and fitting that into the shell.

You still need to PTT off the spacebar (you could rewire it) but its so freakin cool to use the Lollipop mic for digital communications.


plus my good friend Don is an Icom user

Here is the mint version and manual
