[Yaesu] Speech processors

Hi Keith,

Agreed. I use a Heil PR781 plugged directly into my IC-7700's MIC socket.
(The 7700 drives a Quadra.) I let the radio's DSP-based audio-management
features do the "heavy lifting" in the digital domain. No extraneous boxes
or wiring, no added noise or distortion, no EMC surprises. I receive
excellent audio reports with the PR781.

Happy New Year to all!

Cheers for now, 73,

You will not find a microphone much more accurate than the Heil 781, unless
you go to a pro mic used in the recording industry.  I am also a Shure fan,
but the 444 is not as good as the 781.  Check lab specs yourself.

Of course, if you are talking "how it sound over the air," then all bets are
off since that involves subjective opinion rather than empirical evidence.
