Possibly the worst audio connector ever made. the shield braid somehow had to be soldered to the end cord protection spring, and the whole mess pushed down the barrel with hopes that the center bare wire, yet to be soldered was stripped properly to poke through the solder-blob contact.
Assuming the grubscrew made good contact with the soldered spring, and assuming the the securing ring made good contact with the bulkhead connector for ground and the second wire mike conductor you would get sound.
Many a pastor mouthed, or thought evil when the mike also used one of these at the end and started humming mid-sermon..

Agreed, i swap these out for BNC.
In the interest of moving forward and given that no store [physically] visited had a 2501F I am going to solder a short wire to the existing connector on the front panel AND have ordered on-line a female panel mount BNC.
