Well, I have had good luck in the past with getting excellent advice here, 
so I thought I would put this one out...

I am setting up my "contest station" which will be for "semi-serious" 
contesting.  I know that using the standard hand mic with my rig is not the 
most optimum setup - kinda hard to log at the same time.  Mainly I S&P, but 
have been known to do (or at least attempt to do) a run.  I will be using a 
foot switch for PTT of course, but I am debating whether to use a headset 
mic or a boom mic.  What are the advantages/disadvantages to each?  They 
cost roughly the same, so that isn't a factor here, I just want to get the 
one that I will be the most useful for my particular needs.
