Desk mic for FLEX-6400 - MC629 or MC650

edited August 2020 in FLEX-6000 Signature Series
I'd like a little advice on the selection of a desk mic. I've looked at the descriptions of the MC629 and MC650 and see that the 629 is meant for rag chewing and 650 for contesting and DX. My question is can EQ be used with the MC629 to get the same response as the MC650.

    Hi Stan, the TX EQ is excellent on the Flex 6000 radios. I get great audio reports from my stock FHM-3 hand mic. I did a bit of adjusting the TX EQ before getting positive comments. Ken Wells, NM9P, has an excellent series of videos on YouTube that uses a novel approach to adjusting your EQ using the full duplex feature.

    I am guessing that the 629 has a wider freq response. That would be my suggestion as you can more easily narrow down a wider mic using the EQ than making a narrow mic wider. You can set up different mic profiles for different purposes. One for DX, one for rag-chew and anything else that you can think of. I have one profile for my FHM-3, one for my laptop mic, and one for my phone when I am remote.

    You're welcome! By the way, if you get a dynamic mic, be sure to turn off the bias...
