OK, then I'll reply with what I wrote him direct.  I pleaded with him NOT to put
another HC-4 on the air.  I have stopped responding to operators using them
because (in my opinion) they are the worst sounding audio on the bands.  I find
them, especially when combined with the usual over-processing heard during
contests and pileups, to be terrific noise generators.  I find them much more
difficult to copy than more normally-tailored microphone response curves.  The
HC-5 works very well for me, although, as we've seen mentioned here in the past,
it doesn't have enough output to drive the VOX very well.  So, in my opinion,
HC-5 = YES, and HC-4 = NO!!
