Q:With the proper adapter cable, can I plug this microphone directly into a mic preamp and use it that way? I would like to be able to use it without a wireless transmitter, but unsure if the preamp/console needs to provide phantom power, or if the microphone requires another type of power that is not 48Vdc.
A:You will need to use the intended inline power module. Sending phantom power directly to the microphone may damage the element.
Q:Can AT898C mic be wired to work with computer sound card?
A:Thank you for your inquiry. I'm not sure that plug in power from a computer will be enough power for this microphone. If so, I would think you would wire white to tip (audio) red to ring (bias voltage) and shield to sleeve (ground). Please note I've not tried this.
A:Thank you for your inquiry. I assume that you are using this in a wireless configuration connected to a wireless belt pack transmitter. Never use a wired microphone in or near water because of possible shock or even electrocution. If this is being used in a wireless configuration then one possible way to protect the microphone is to place it inside a non lubricated condom. This is something we do with our microphones at the Olympic games to keep them dry. You will also need to make sure that the transmitter is kept dry as well. Please note that the version you mentioned, the AT898C is unterminated it has no connector. The AT898cW is configured to work with an Audio-Technica wireless belt pack system.
