Most automotive cb's use a condensor (electret) mike. They need phantom power, so won't work on Wing. Wing needs the dynamic type element, or a battery powered condensor element. Air rider, is one I can think of.
Then, the other problem. How to get into "talk" mode?. It's easy to use the speakers for receive, and a element in mike body, then use ptt on left grip, but if you want ptt on mike body, it gets a little more complicated. A Harley set-up (7 pin) makes it much easier, but, then, you have to put that type end on your regular helmet(s) communications systems. Or, yet another lash-up for the external mike with it's appropriate connectors to include ptt. But bottom line, where to find dynamic element. Little speakers will work, but, it's the size problem. Inside of some cb mic housings, some speakers will fit just fine. I imagine J&M will sell us an appropriate one.
