I just posted another Video Tutorial to YouTube.

This is probably not my best work, but I took the standard hand mike, beginning with all the setting flat and tuned it up for better sound.

I really need to spend some more time tweaking it, but I usually spend a couple of hours adjusting, recording, and re-tweaking a new mike in order to get it the way I want it.  Then I live with it for a while and make some additional changes until it is the best I can get it.  The Rag Chew Profile it is still a little "honky" with too much in the 500-1200 range.  My hand mike seems to have a natural resonance there.

I present this as a concept tutorial just to let you see how some of the different EQ sliders affect the combined sound.  The rest of it is up to you.  

Equipment:
Flex-6500
FHM-1 Hand Mike
SmartSDR v.1.5.1

UPDATE:  I played some more after posting this video, and discovered that the hollow resonance required me to drop some more of the 250 & 500 Hz and add some at 125 and 63 to get the sound I was working toward.  Final EQ settings for my voice and preference on the Rag Chew settings on this mike are from left to right.....  -5, -6, -7, -4, -1, 7, 5, -10.  That is about as good as I can do without spending a lot more time on it.
