The HTX-212 Microphone wiring diagram in the service manual shows that the microphone has some sort of processor (probably for processing the buttons). But you should be able to get another microphone to work as long as the base doesn't look for some sort of commands from the microphone (to check for microphone existence). All you should need is a microphone that has a ptt (which when pushed shorts to ground), and a microphone. Here is a picture of the current RJ45 HTX-212 Microphone Pinout:

If you find another microphone with the ptt and mic, you can just make an adapter or re-wire the new microphone. The only thing you will not have is the button control.

Hope this helps.
