I use a Heil GM-4 hand mike on am and ssb.  I also have a deep voice  
and used to be in radio broadcasting.  The Heil wide element has a  
freq response of 60-16k with a bump at 2k to improve intelligence  
while still having a good low end.  The mike also has the Heil high  
freq element with a switch to change into it if needed.  I never use  
the high element only use the full range.  I get excellent audio  
reports on am and ssb.  I am using a Kenwood TS-2000.
