Comments about HM135 Microphone for M802:
ICOM is a world leader in marine radios, and the ICOM M802 single-sideband radio is a standard for full-time offshore cruisers such as ourselves. For that reason, it is amazing that their microphone cords are so perishable. The cord insulation deteriorates in less than 2 years even if the radio is kept below, with no exposure to water, high temperatures, UV or any other environmental factors. Replacing the microphone every year or so is a sort of tax all M802 owners pay for owning this otherwise great radio.
