Great on FM, but SSB has 'issues'
Rating: 
I've one of these in my Land Rover Defender. Its always been noisy in the cab, despite best efforts with soundproofing, so being able to fit the mic in a place that points right where it most needs to is a real bonus. There's no noise cancelling capability built in, but there is a pre-amp.

The pre-amp is rather sensitive, and I need the built in pot 'just on' with my FT-857, and even then it's much much louder on FM than stock mic, to the point that it drives the radio into clipping (not a good kind of loud). Once it's set up for FM, it's brilliant. Easy QSO's on local repeaters and FM simplex.

On SSB it's a different matter. That pre-amp picks up RF and I've tried everything over the last 5 years to solve it, including changing the leads, decoupling, RF chokes and ferrites - all to no avail. The only solution for SSB is to NOT use it.

Its great for handsfree chatter. Forget it for mobile HF, simply not viable.
