The popular HM-10 had been redesigned with our new HC-5x and HC-4x elements mounted on an acoustically tuned chamber to reproduce the popular narrow HC-4 response for DX work and a full smooth response of the HC-5 elements. This allows users to operate a full range mic for everyday rag chew and instantly switch to a narrow punchy DX element for DX work or to just punch through pileups. One mic that covers all your needs in communications.
The new HC-5X (wide) is ideal for every day, articulate speech audio anywhere you need good, full-range audio. A +6 dB rise at 2,500 Hz, the frequency right in the middle of the human voice pattern, brings great articulation to your signal. The low-end response rolls off at 300 Hz. The -3 dB point of the HC-5X is set at 300 Hz to 8 kHz with the tuned peak being +6 dB at 2,500 Hz.
The new HC-4X (narrow) element has been designed for serious DXers. It places a +10 dB rise at 2,500 Hz, which is right in the middle of the human speech range. The result is not a pretty sound, but it cuts through. The low-end response rolls off at 600 Hz. The -3 dB point of the HC-4X is set at 600 Hz to 6 kHz with the tuned peak being +10 dB at 2,500 Hz.
The HM-10 XD microphone comes equipped with a microphone clip and a foam windscreen.
A CC-1 adapter is required to interface with your transceiver.
