Thanks Alan, good tip. I will expand my search.
I have a 817 and mike, but am up in Santa Fe. Also be aware that a
mike from other Yaesu radios may work. Mine is interchangeable with
the FT-450 that I had.

My FT-817ND has developed a microphone issue. It's not
generating any audio. On FM the carrier is there by no audio.
On SSB the radio keys up but their is no modulation, no power
on the meter, and no ALC action.
The radio works fine via the data jack. I made several FT8
contacts on 6 meters during the contest using it.
The reason I am bringing it up here is to ask if anyone has
an FT-817 and microphone that I could use to test mine. I
would like to connect a known good mic to my radio followed by
connecting a known good radio to my mic. The goal being to
isolate the cause of this issue.
Thanks and 73,
