Heil Head Set Question for my KX3 and KX2 rigs

Carter Craigie
Hello fellow Elecrafters,
I am fortunate to have a nice friend who handmade a jumper for me to use on
my KX3 with my Heil headset. Thank you, Bruce!
But, is there a manufacturer who makes an adaptor expressly made for using a
Heil headset with KX2 and KX3 (and K3) rigs?
I'm thinking that there MUST be, as so many fine DXpeditioners use K3 and
such rigs from those remote islands!
Any advice, please?
73,
Carter Craigie, N3AO

This is a nice stereo breakout cable that should split mic in and ptt so you can use a heil and a footswitch. I keep one of these along with a small hand actuated ptt switch.  I cant really think of anything else that would be necessary.

all fits nicely in the Lowepro case offered by Elecraft.

Carter,

I am not sure if this is what you have in mind, but I use this cable:  
Hosa YMM-26.  It is a Y cable that  plugs into the KX3's Mic. jack, and
provides an output line for both PTT and Mic.   The headset then plugs
into the earphone jack on the KX3.

Carter.

The Heil should directly plug into the Phones and Mic jacks on the rear of the K3.

Bill, I built such an interface box for my KX3 so that I could use either a computer headset or a 8pin mic connector. Also I included a PTT switch and a jack to plugin an external PTT switch such as a foot switch.
