Astatic D-104 Microphone or similar. (below are some other types you could convert)
One computer microphone with cord (everything you need to upgrade in one package)
Tools and supplies
soldering iron with solder
1/4" heat shrink tube
NOTE :should you find another type of microphone to convert, check Ebay for its current market price, you could have one worth allot of cash. An example is a microphone that looks just like the one being converted here, but its gold plated and has an eagle on the back of the head. This is the Golden Eagle version made in the seventies, worth a few hundred bucks!
Wow! That's GREAT news for you! I know
How it can be when one is forced by circumstances to be out of contact with a close family member and what a joy it is to get re-connected again. I'm very happy for you...no one should have a son or daughter they cannot talk with and hold sometimes, it's just unnatural.
So, I wish you well and all the happiness there can be!

It's barely 4:30 a.m. when she grabs a cup of coffee and joins more than two dozen colleagues, each settling into a cubicle with a computer and earphones.
More than 7,000 miles away, in Glenview, Ill., outside Chicago, it's the evening of the previous day and 14-year-old Princeton John sits at his computer, barefoot and ready for his hourlong geometry lesson. The high school freshman puts on a headset with a microphone and clicks on computer software that will link him through the Internet to his tutor, Namitha, many time zones away.
