    Uniden Mic differences

    Does anyone know what the difference is between similarly-numbered models BMKG0645001 and the BC645? Looking on Uniden's site, they look the same, but the BMKG0645001 ($19.99) is listed for use with PRO505Xl & PRO538W radios, while the BC645 ($24.99) is "Compatible with PRO500 Series CB Radios"...

    Alinco EMS-12 Cable

    My Alinco EMS-12 mic is still in great condition, however the cable has a bad case of rubber rot. I think it's pretty dumb to have to buy a new mic, just because of a bad cable, but Alinco/GRE no longer stocks the cable and even the Chinese don't seem to make one. I'd be happy replacing it with...
