Default CB radio mic on my computer?

Dumb question... has anyone been able to use their CB radio mic on their
computer, like for VOIP? Like, uplug mic from CB, and plug it into their
computer? Does it work?

Why would you want to? The computer has a stereo mini-jack. CB mike has
DIN or other style connector. Sounds fairly pointless, as the cost of
making an adaptor between the two jack styles far exceeds what the price a
standard computer mic. would run at the store.

I challenge you to find a computer mic that picks up well, doesn't sound
like **** *and* costs less than what it would in theory to convert a radio
mike.

I picked up a cheap iconcepts mike at one of the depot office stores.
It sounds better then the built in mike on my camcorder. I works great
on echolink and skype. It even sounded good when I made a PS trailer.

It's the small teardrop shaped one. They changed the color to silver
and doubled the price since I bought mine.

Challenge all you like. I'm not interested in such nonsense; the idea was
foolish to begin with. I can guarantee that a CB mike won't sound any
better (if not worse) on a computer than a standard microphone, even the
crap from Radio Shack.

Take your pick, you'd be hard pressed to create a CB mike to computer
adapter for much less than these:

Thanks, I know it sounded a little counterintuitive, but I just wanted to
know if anyone had ever tried it before. Thanks.

That last bit was aimed at you, but to the person that got all weird over a
comment. The idea is pretty foolish and probably would sound like crap,
BUT, I don't see anything wrong with trying it if you were really interested
in it. That's one of the founding stones of radio...experimentation.

gvien you are taking Cb what about usinga jack for the PA setting most
CB's seem to have (as does my 10 meter rig) you turn it to pa with the
a cable to your PC


Oh sure Mark, take the chance of running 5 watts of audio into the sound
card! Please don't make anymore ignorant suggestions.
