I have a barn-find Astatic D-104 that I am interested in refurbishing.

It is fair condition and was last used almost 30 years ago.

Here is a photo.

I has the 4 pin mic connector.

Mach just restored one of these. His was a 1930's vintage, I believe.

I don't know if he's the "Guru" you're looking for, but he put together a great write up in his boat anchor thread over on the ArfCom site.

Hope that helps ya.

Very cool microphone!


Best of luck with it.


73, and keep the squelch loose.
