I’m still more of an audio professional than an accomplished ham, so I’ll ask 
while the thread is hot - why does ham gear use non-standard interconnects? Why 
don't Elecraft and others move to 3-pin XLR? Honestly, the bottom of my mic 
cabinet is probably overkill for ham, but the fact I have to get (or make) a 
custom adapter for even my least expensive mic irks me.
